Higashi-Totsuka Station (東戸塚駅; -eki) is in the Totsuka District of Yokohama City in Kanagawa prefecture. The station is owned by East Japan Railway Company (JR-East) and is located on the Tokaido Main Line, but only has platforms for the Yokosuka Line. Currently, as the station is part of the Shonan-Shinjuku Line, trains operating on the Tokaido Main Line do not stop at Higashi-Totsuka.
The station has an island-type platform with two tracks. The station buildings are built above the platforms.
The residential area is growing. The Aurora Mall, in front of the train station, houses Daiei and Seibu. Forced to compete with the well established shopping district arounf Yokohama Station, sales have, seemingly, shown little growth and rumors suggest that there is talk that Seibu may close shop in Higashi-Totsuka.
- October 1, 1980 Opened. Established when the Tokaido Line & Yokosuka Line trains where separated into two lines.
