Iga-Kambe Station opened on October 10, 1930 as a station on the Sangu Express Electric Railway. The station replaced Shoda Station (庄田駅?) on the former Iga Electric Railway, which had been opened on July 18, 1922, but which was located several hundred meters from Iga-Kambe Station. The Iga Electric Railway became part of the Sangu Electric Railway on March 31, 1929. After merging with Osaka Electric Kido on March 15, 1941, the Sangu Electric Express became part of the Kansai Express Railway.[2] This line was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu.[2] On October 1, 1964, the section of the Kintetsu Iga Line between this station and Mihata Station was abandoned, making this station effectively a terminus of the Kintetsu Iga Line. The remaining portion of the Kintetsu Iga Line from this station to Iga-Ueno Station became the Iga Railway, a separately-operated subsidiary company of Kintetetsu in 2007.
