Fujinomiya Station was opened on July 20, 1913 as part of the original Minobu Line under the name of Omiya Station (大宮駅 Omiya-eki?). It came under control of the Japan National Railway on May 1, 1941 and on October 1, 1942 its name was changed to the present name. The station building was rebuilt in 1983. Regularly scheduled freight service was discontinued from 1984. Along with the division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control and operation of the Central Japan Railway Company. The station was remodeled in 2007 to allow for barrier free access.
