The area of present Tempaku District has strong connections with the Oda clan and was a frequently battlefield in the Sengoku period. During the Edo period, it was largely part of Owari Domain under the Tokugawa shogunate. The modern village of Tempaku was established in 1906 within Aichi District. It was annexed by the city of Nagoya in 1955, becoming part of Showa District. In 1975, Showa District was divided into the new Showa District and Tempaku District.
