HistoryEdit

The present-day JR East station opened on 25 December 1896.[2] The Tobu station opened on 9 May 1911.[1] The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987. In July 1998, the platforms for the Jōban Line were lengthened by three meters.[citation needed] The South Exit to the station was opened on April 8, 1999.[citation needed]

From 17 March 2012, station numbering was introduced on all Tōbu lines, with Kashiwa Station becoming "TD-24".[3]
