HistoryEdit

Iga-Ueno Station was opened on January 15, 1897 as Ueno Station (上野駅, Ueno-eki). 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. The station name was changed to its present name on September 11, 1916. Freight operations were discontinued from February 1, 1984. With the privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of West Japan Railway Company (JR-West).

The Iga Railway began operations on August 8, 1916. Through a series of mergers, the line became part of the Kintetsu group by June 1, 1944, but was spun-out as an independent company again on October 1, 2007.

Passenger statisticsEdit

In fiscal 2019, the JR station was used by an average of 525 passengers daily and the Iga Railway portion by 278 passengers daily (boarding passengers only).[1]
