Lines

Higashi-Totsuka Station is served by the Shōnan-Shinjuku Line and the Yokosuka Line. It is located 36.7 km from the terminus of the Yokosuka Line at Tokyo Station. The station is located on the Tōkaidō Main Line, but trains operating on the Tōkaidō Main Line do not stop at Higashi-Totsuka.

Station layout

Higashi Totsuka Station has a single island platform with two tracks. The station buildings are built above the platforms.

The Yokosuka line and Shōnan-Shinjuku Line share the same platforms. There are another two sets of tracks to the either side of the platform. One set is used for the through traffic of the Tōkaidō Main Line, and the other set is for non-stop freight trains.

History

Higashi Totsuka Station opened as a station on the Japanese National Railways (JNR) on October 1, 1980, after local residents had petitioned the government for a railway station for over a half century. The opening coincided with the separation of the tracks for the Tōkaidō Main Line and Yokosuka Line into two separate sets of tracks from Yokohama through Ofuna Station.

Surrounding area

The Aurora Mall, in front of the train station, houses Aeon and Seibu stores.
