Yamato Station opened on May 12, 1926 as a station on the Jintsu Railway. The Odakyu Station was opened on April 1, 1929 slightly to the west of the existing station, and was named Nishi-Yamato Station (西大和駅, Nishi-Yamato-eki). On June 1, 1944, Yamato Station was relocated to become adjacent to Nishi-Yamato Station, with the new joint station taking the name Yamato Station. The station building was completely reconstructed in a multiyear project beginning from 1986. In 1993, the tracks and platform of the Sagami Railway were relocated to a subway level, which created room for expansion of the Odakyu station to two platforms in 1996.
Izumi no Mori, a nature park operated by the city of Yamato, is located near the station.
