Mutsu-Ichikawa Station was opened on November 5, 1926 as the Todoroki Signal (轟信号場?, Todoroki shingōjō) on the Tōhoku Main Line. It was elevated in status to a full station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR), the pre-war predecssor to the Japan National Railways (JNR), on November 11, 1944 and given its present name at the same time. Regularly scheduled freight services were discontinued in October 1971, and the station has been managed from Hachinohe Station since February 1985. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of East Japan Railway Company (JR East).

The section of the Tōhoku Main Line including this station was transferred to Aoimori Railway on December 4, 2010. The station has been unattended since 1999.
