Inako Station (稲子駅 Inako-eki?) is a railway station on the Minobu Line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) located in Fujinomiya, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. It is located 24.0 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Minobu Line at Fuji Station.


Inako Station was opened on August 15, 1929 as part of the original Minobu Line for both passenger and freight services. It came under control of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on May 1, 1941. The JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. Freight services were discontinued in 1961. Along with the division and privatization of JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control and operation of the Central Japan Railway Company.
