Himekawa Station is served by the Hakodate Main Line, and lies 44.2 km from the starting point of the line at Hakodate. The station is numbered H63.
The station has two side platforms serving two tracks on the otherwise single line. The platforms are linked by a level crossing for passenger use. The station is unstaffed.
The station opened on 19 May 1951. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR Hokkaido.
In June 2016, JR Hokkaido announced that it intended to close the station along with four other unstaffed stations on the line in March 2017, due to low passenger usage.
In fiscal 2015, the station was used on average by less than one passenger daily. National Route 5
