Higashi-Yodogawa Station (東淀川駅 Higashi-Yodogawa-eki) is a train station in Yodogawa-ku, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.
The station opened on April 1, 1940. When the Tōkaidō Shinkansen and Shin-Osaka Station opened in 1964, the original plan was to close Higashi-Yodogawa (only 0.7 km from Shin-Osaka in what was then a largely rural area), but neighborhood residents' objections succeeded in keeping the station open. This distance is the shortest between any two stations on the JR Kyoto Line, as well as between any two stations on the entirety of the Tōkaidō Main Line, followed closely by Tokyo–Yūrakuchō on the Yamanote Line and the Keihin-Tōhoku Line and Sannomiya–Motomachi on the JR Kobe Line, at 0.8 km each.
The station has two island platforms, each of which exclusively serves up or down trains. Outer side of each platform is fenced as no trains on the outer tracks make stop at this station.
