Tambaguchi Station opened on April 27, 1897, when the Kyoto Railway extended from Nijō to Ōmiya (temporary terminal in Kyoto). On March 16, 1976, the station was moved 0.5 kilometers northward and elevated. At this time, the freight facilities of the station, which had served Kyoto Central Wholesale Market, were not elevated and became independent Kyōto-ichiba Freight Terminal (京都市場駅, Kyōto-ichiba-eki). The freight terminal closed on February 1, 1984.[1]
