Anjō Station was opened 16 June 1891 when the section of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) line connecting Okazaki with Kariya was completed. This line was named Tōkaidō Line in 1895, and the Tōkaidō Main Line in 1909. An all-freight spur line operated by the privately held Hekinan Electric Railway connected Anjō to Hekinan in 1939 and began passenger operations from March 1951, but was discontinued in 1961. In October 1980, the JNR discontinued all freight services to Anjō Station. With the privatization and dissolution of the JNR on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of the Central Japan Railway Company. At that time, an additional side platform was constructed.
Anjō Station has an island platform and two side platforms serving four tracks; however, only tracks 2 and 3 on the island platform are in normal operations. Track 1 is used for chartered and peak hour services, and use of track four was completely discontinued in 2010. The elevated station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a manned "Green Window" service counter.
