Keikyū Kawasaki Station is served by the Keikyu Main Line, and lies 13.0 kilometres (8.1 mi) from the official starting point of the line at Sengakuji in Tokyo. The station is also a terminus for the 4.5 km Keikyu Daishi Line to Kojimashinden.
Keikyū Kawasaki Station has two elevated island platforms serving four tracks for the Keikyū Main Line, connected to the three ground-level bay platforms serving the Keikyu Daishi Line and station building by an underpass.
The station opened on September 1, 1902 as Kawasaki Station (川崎駅) as a station on the privately owned Keihin Electric Railway. It was renamed Keihin Kawasaki Station (京浜川崎駅) on November 1, 1925 to avoid confusion with the nearby JGR Kawasaki Station. The tracks were elevated in May 1966. The station was renamed Keikyu Kawasaki on June 1, 1987.
In fiscal 2011, the station was used by an average of 113,635 passengers daily.
To the west of the station is the Yodobashi Camera store. The station is also surrounded by many shopping complexes, restaurants, and a Toho movie theater. JR Kawasaki Station is located to the southwest of the station.
