The station opened as the terminus of the Sanyō Railway on July 20, 1892 when the line was extended from Onomichi to this station. The station was named Mihara Station. On June 10, 1894, the railway was further extended to Hiroshima Station thus the present-day Mihara Station opened and the former Mihara Station was renamed Itozaki Station.[1]
