What is Higashi-Nakano Station Like?

Higashi-Nakano is a station along the JR Chuo-Sobu Line and the Toei Ōedo Line. It affords easy access to numerous locations, which makes the station surroundings a favored area to live.

The history of Higashi-Nakano Station goes back to 1906, when the station started its  operation as Kashiwagi Station. At that time, the station had only one exit (current east exit). Kashiwagi Station was renamed as the current Higashi-Nakano Station after eleven years. Overall, this station has been serving its customers for over 100 years.

The station surrounding is well developed to support the lives of its residents, with station buildings, shopping streets, restaurants and supermarkets.
