The area of present-day Mizuho was part of ancient Musashi Province. In the post-Meiji Restoration cadastral reform of July 22, 1878, the area became part of Nishitama District in Kanagawa Prefecture. The villages of Hakenogasaki, Ishihata, Tonogaya and Nagaoka were created on April 1, 1889 with the establishment of municipalities law. Nishitama District was transferred to the administrative control of Tokyo Metropolis on April 1, 1893. The town of Mizuho was established by the merger of the four villages on November 10, 1940. Mizuho annexed the neighbouring town on Moto-Sayama from Saitama Prefecture in 1958.
Mizuho has five public elementary schools, two public middle schools and one public high school (Mizuho Nōgei High School). There is also one special education school.JR East - Hachikō Line
