Kai-Yamato Station was opened on February 1, 1903 as Hajikano Station (初鹿野駅, Kajikano-eki) on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Chūō Main Line. The JGR became the JNR (Japanese National Railways) after the end of World War II. Scheduled freight services were discontinued from April 1966. The current station building was completed in November 1966. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company. The station was named to its present name on April 1, 1993. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from October 16, 2004.
In fiscal 2013, the station was used by an average of 143 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).
