History

The station opened on the Nambu Railway on March 9, 1927, initially named Shitte Halt (尻手停留場, Shitte-Teiryūjō). It officially became a full station in 1929. The Nambu Branch Line opened on 25 March 1930, initially as a freight-only line. The Nambu Railway was nationalized on April 1, 1944, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) system, which became the Japanese National Railways (JNR) from 1949. A freight-only spur line to the Shin-Tsurumi Freight Terminal was opened on 1 October 1973 from the line just north of the station. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East.

Passenger statistics

In fiscal 2013, the station was used by an average of 12,873 passengers daily (boarding passengers only). The passenger figures for previous years are as shown below.
