Karasuyama Town was established with the creation of the municipalities system on April 1, 1889. It merged with the neighboring villages of Mukada, Sakai, and Nanago on March 31, 1954. The modern city of Nasukarasuyama was established on October 1, 2005, from the merger of the towns of Karasuyama and Minaminasu (both from Nasu District).
