Namegawa Station (滑河駅, Namegawa-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East’s Narita Line located in Narita, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It is 25.5 kilometers from the terminus of the Narita Line at Sakura Station.


Namegawa Station was opened on December 29, 1897 as a terminal station on the Narita Railway for both passenger and freight operations. The line was extended to Sawara on February 3, 1898. A new station building was completed in 1920, just before the Narita Railway was nationalised on September 1, 1920, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR). After World War II, the JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR). Scheduled freight operations were suspended from April 1, 1971. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the Japan National Railways (JNR) on April 1, 1987. The station building was rebuilt in 2005.



Namegawa Station has a dual opposed side platforms by an overpass; however, platform 1 is used only during peak hours.
