Sakahogi was formed on October 1, 1968 when the village of Sakahogi (坂祝村 Sakahogi-mura?) gained town status. The village of Sakahogi was formed on April 1, 1897 by a merger of the villages of Sakakura, Torikumi, Ōhari, Kuroiwa, Fukagaya, Katsuyama and Fukada, and got its name from Sakahogi shrine. In 1950 the Fukada part of Sakahogi was merged into the town of Ōta, now a part of Minokamo.[3]
