The Tobu station opened on 23 April 1903.[2] The Hokubu Railway opened between Hanyu and Gyodashi on 1 April 1921, with the Hokubu Railway being absorbed into the Chichibu Railway in 1922.[2]

The station was rebuilt with the station building located over the tracks, formally completed on 22 October 2004.[2]

From the start of the revised timetable on 18 March 2006, a new up track was added on the east side of the station to allow non-stop trains to pass, and the Tobu platforms were renumbered accordingly.[2]

From 17 March 2012, station numbering was introduced on all Tobu lines, with Hanyū Station becoming "TI-07".[3]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2011, the Tobu station was used by an average of 14,408 passengers daily, and the Chichibu Railway station was used by an average of 3,711 passengers daily.[1]
