Kawano Station began as the Kida Signal (木田信号場 Kida Shingosho) on July 1, 1928, and was upgraded to a full station on the Kansai Main Line of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on March 1, 1949. The JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. The station was named Suzuka Station (鈴鹿駅 Suzuka eki) at the time, but was renamed to its present name on July 10, 1973. The station has been unattended since February, 1986. The station was absorbed into the JR Central network upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987.
