History[edit]

Tsuruta Station opened on 2 September 1902. Prior to this, the area was served by Togami Station (砥上駅), which was located to the west of present-day Tsuruta Station. Togami Station was closed with the opening of Tsuruta. On 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR East with the privatization of the Japanese National Railways (JNR). A new station building was completed in March 2014.[citation needed]
