Sanagu Station (佐那具駅?, Sanagu-eki) is a train station of West Japan Railway Company (JR-West) in Iga, Mie, Japan. It is located 90.5 rail kilometres from the terminus of the Kansai Main Line at Nagoya Station and 30.6 rail kilometers from Kameyama Station.


Sanagu Station was opened on January 15, 1897 with the extension of the Kansai Railway from Tsuge Station to Iga-Ueno Station. The Kansai Railway was nationalized on October 1, 1907, becoming part of the Imperial Government Railways (IGR), which became Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from August 1, 1970. With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR-West.



Sanagu Station has 2 side platforms serving 2 tracks, connected by an overpass.
