Tōna Station opened on December 1, 1931 as a station on the Miyagi Electric Railway. The line was nationalized on May 1, 1944. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987.

The station was closed from March 11, 2011 due to damage to the line associated with the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, and services were replaced by provisional bus services. The station reopened on May 30, 2015 on a higher ground where the former community around the station would be reconstructed.[1][2] Due to the relocation, the distance from Aoba-Dōri was changed from 32.4 kilometers to 32.2 kilometers.[3]
