When the Tōkaidō Shinkansen opened, the distance between Toyohashi Station and Nagoya Station was the second longest on the route of the line. In 1969, the mayors of Okazaki, Toyota, Anjō, Gamagōri, Nishio, Hekinan, Isshiki, Kira, Kōta, Hazu, Nukata and Otowa submitted the petition of establishing Kokuteikōen-Mikawa Station (国定公園三河駅 Kokuteikōen-Mikawa-eki?) in Kota.
These cities and towns formed the "Alliance for Mikawa Station". Kōta town subsequently recommended Ashinoya near Kōda Station. Okazaki city recommended Shōna-chō, Okazaki, Anjō city recommended Furui-chō near Hekikai-Furui Station, and Nihongi-chō where the Tōkaidō Shinkansen and Tōkaidō Main Line intersect as possible candidate locations. The alliance entrusted the decision to the Aichi prefectural government. On January 5, 1984, the prefectural government decided to build the station in Nihongi, Anjō. Construction work started on July 29, 1985, and the station was opened on March 13, 1988.
