History

The line opened as a one-stop single-track spur from Chōfu to Tamagawahara on June 1, 1916, electrified at 600 VDC, and was duplicated on April 1, 1924. On May 1, 1937, Tamagawahara was renamed Keiō-Tamagawa, and on August 4, 1963, the voltage was increased to 1500 VDC.

The line was extended (all extensions were electrified dual track) on April 1, 1971, to Keiō-Yomiuri-Land. Subsequent extensions brought the line to Keiō-Tama-Center (October 18, 1974), Minami-Ōsawa (May 22, 1988) and Hashimoto (March 30, 1990). Tamasakai station opened on April 6, 1991. These extensions were planned to serve Tama New Town.

Between 1992 and 2001, a limited express service existed, stopping at Chōfu, Keiō-Tama-Center, and Hashimoto. In 2012 the Chofu - Tamagawahara section was relocated underground.
