Kamiooka

 

Kami-Ooka Station is located in the Kami-Ooka area of Konan Ward in Yokohama. It is served by the Keihin Electric Express Railway's Keikyu's Main Line and the Yokohama Municipal Subway's Blue Line.

Kami-Ooka Station is the third largest and the third busiest station in Yokohama City with over 270,000 passengers passing through it every day. The area around the station is a busy commercial area with some large stores and popular restaurant chains.

 

Kami-Ooka was a small farming village called Kuraki-gun Ooga-no-sato during the Edo era. The village also had an established textile printing industry, which was set along the Ooka River. After World War II, the village grew into a busy commercial district but major redevelopment took place only after Yokohama City passed the Redevelopment Project in 1988. Another Reconstruction Plan was passed in 1991. By 1997 most of the projects were complete and Kami-Ooka became a modern urban area with several high rise office buildings, shopping centers, cinema complexes, and restaurants.
