Hiyoshi Station opened as one of the original Toyoko Line stations on February 14, 1926. The station was completely rebuilt in 1991 with half-submerged tracks and an elevated station building constructed above the tracks. The adjacent Tokyu Department store opened in 1995. The Yokohama Subway Green Line connected to Hiyoshi Station on March 30, 2008.
An approximately 10 km link is scheduled to be constructed from a new station at Hazawa on the JR Freight Tokaido Line via Shin-Yokohama, enabling through services to and from the Sagami Railway Main Line via Nishiya from March 2019.
