Ōkute-juku was the forty-seventh of the sixty-nine stations of the Nakasendō during the Edo period.
This is the first station along the Nakasendō to be in the domain of the Owari Clan, one of the most powerful regional clans.
Ōkute-juku was first established in 1604, and came to serve as a post town between Ōi-juku and Hosokute-juku (which come before and after Ōkute-juku, respectively). Biwa Pass (琵琶峠 Biwa-tōge) crossed a small mountain between those two post towns and is near where Ōkute-juku was established.
