Toyohashi Station on is served by the high-speed Tokaido Shinkansen, and the conventional Tokaido Main Line and Iida Line operated by JR Central. It is also a terminus of the private Meitetsu Nagoya Main Line.

Toyohashi Railroad has two small stations close to Toyohashi Station: Shin-Toyohashi Station for the Atsumi Line railway and Ekimae Station for the Azumada Main Line tramway.


Local train services at Toyohashi Station are handled by five platforms serving eight tracks. The Iida Line and Meitetsu lines use three tracks terminating in a bay platform. The Tokaido Main Line uses a side platform and two island platforms. The elevated shinkansen portion of Toyohashi Station has a side platform and an island platform.


Toyohashi Station opened September 1, 1888. The privately owned Toyokawa Railway began operations to Toyohashi on July 15, 1897, but renamed its terminus Yoshida Station (吉田駅) in 1899 to differentiate itself from the government railway system. The station building was rebuilt in 1916 and again in 1927. The Aichi Electric Railway's Toyohashi Line began operations to the Yoshida Station side of the facility on June 1, 1927. This line became part of Meitetsu on August 1, 1935, and is now the Nagoya Main Line. The Toyokawa Railway was nationalized on August 1, 1943, becoming the Iida Line, and the usage of ‘Yoshida Station’ was dropped. The station was destroyed in the Toyohashi Air Raid of June 20, 1945, during World War II.

After the war, the JGR became the Japanese National Railways (JNR), and a new station was completed in 1950. The Tokaido Shinkansen opened on October 1, 1964. A new station building was completed in 1970. With the privatization and dissolution of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR Central. A shopping center and a hotel were added to the station building complex in 1997.
