Negishi Station was opened on May 19, 1964, as a station on the Japan National Railways (JNR) for both passenger and freight services. The Kanagawa Rinkai Railway's Honmoku Line, also for freight-only operations, began operations from Neishi on October 1, 1969. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) in 1987.
