HistoryEdit

The JR East station first opened as Haramachida Station (原町田駅) on September 23, 1908.[2] The Odakyu station opened on 1 April 1927 as Shin-Haramachida Station (新原町田駅), which was renamed Machida Station on 11 April 1976, and the current station building and Odakyu Department Store opened on 23 September 1976. The JR station was moved 0.4 km towards Hachiōji and also renamed to Machida on April 1, 1980 to reduce the walking distance between it and the Odakyu station from 700 m to 300 m, to facilitate interchange.[2][3]
