Toyohashi Station opened September 1, 1888. The privately owned Toyokawa Railway began operations to Toyohashi on July 15, 1897, but renamed its terminus Yoshida Station (吉田駅) in 1899 to differentiate itself from the government railway system. The station building was rebuilt in 1916 and again in 1927. The Aichi Electric Railway's Toyohashi Line began operations to the Yoshida Station side of the facility on June 1, 1927. This line became part of Meitetsu on August 1, 1935, and is now the Nagoya Main Line. The Toyokawa Railway was nationalized on August 1, 1943, becoming the Iida Line, and the usage of ‘Yoshida Station’ was dropped. The station was destroyed in the Toyohashi Air Raid of June 20, 1945, during World War II.
After the war, the JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR), and a new station was completed in 1950. The Tokaido Shinkansen opened on October 1, 1964. A new station building was completed in 1970.
With the privatization and dissolution of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR Central. A shopping center and a hotel were added to the station building complex in 1997.
In fiscal 2017, the JR portion of the station was used by an average of 29,045 passengers daily (arriving passengers only) and the Meitetsu portion by 17,479.
