The station first opened on January 21, 1887, named Kanō Station (加納駅) and was primarily used for the transport of goods. On December 15, 1888, it became a passenger rail station, at which point its name was changed to Gifu Station. On July 22, 1913, the former Aichi Station building, which closed in 1909, was moved to the area that is now the south side of Gifu Station. This station was used until it was burned to the ground during the firebombings of Gifu City in 1945. On April 1, 1987, it became part of JR Central. On November 1, 1986, construction of the elevated rail lines began, with construction ending on March 2, 1996. The station was extensively remodelled in 2008.
In fiscal 2016, the station was used by an average of 31,742 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).
On the north side of JR Gifu Station are bus boarding platforms for all of the bus lines belonging to Gifu Bus, Co., Ltd. There are 15 bus boarding platforms in all, with 12 serving bus lines to different parts of Gifu and its surrounding municipalities. The first two platforms are only for alighting and the last one is currently not being used.
