Tsuge Station was opened on February 18, 1890 with the extension of the Kansai Railway from Mikumo Station, making it the oldest station within Mie Prefecture. The Kansai Railway was extended to Yokkaichi Station on December 25, 1890 and to Ueno Station on January 15, 1897. The line 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, 1972. With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR-West.
