History

Kamakura Station opened on June 16 1889 as a station on a spur line from Ōfuna on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), the pre-war predecessor to the Japan National Railways (JNR) to serve the Yokosuka Naval Arsenal and related Imperial Japanese Navy facilities at Yokosuka. This line was renamed the Yokosuka Line in October 1909. The terminus of the Enoshima Electric Railway was relocated to Kamakura Station on March 1, 1949. All freight operations were stopped in 1962. The station building was rebuilt in October 1984. The station came under the management of JR East upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987.
