History

The station opened on April 1, 1930 as a temporary stop on the Shōnan Electric Railways. At that time, it was named Yokosuka-Horinouchi Provisional Station (横須賀堀内仮駅), and was located 200 meters closer to Yokosuka-Chūō Station than the present station. In June 1936, it was elevated in status to a full station. In November 1941, the Shōnan Electric Railways and the Keihin Electric Railways merged, and in May 1942 became part of the Tokyu Corporation. The station was relocated to its present address in November 1942. In 1948, the Keihin Electric Express Railway became independent
