Bentembashi Station was opened on March 10, 1926 as the initial terminal station on the privately held Tsurumi Rinkō Railway (鶴見臨港鉄道 Tsurumi Rinkō Tetsudō?) and initially for freight operations only. Passenger services started from October 28, 1930 when the line was extended to Tsurumi Station. The Tsurumi Rinkō line was nationalized on July 1, 1943, and was later absorbed into the Japan National Railways (JNR) network. The station has been unstaffed since March 1, 1971. Upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987 the station has been operated by JR East.
