Takarachō Station (宝町駅 Takarachō-eki?) is Station A-12 on the Toei Asakusa Line of the Tokyo Subway network in Japan. It is located underground in the Kyōbashi neighborhood of Chūō, Tokyo. Its two platforms serve the line's two tracks. Platform 1 handles passengers bound for Sengakuji and Nishi Magome Stations. Platform 2 is for traffic toward Nihombashi and Oshiage Stations.

Although transfer is not possible, passengers may walk to nearby stations on other lines. Kyōbashi Station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line and Hatchōbori Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line are a few minutes' walk from Takarachō.

Takarachō Station opened on February 28, 1963, on what was then called Line 1. The line took its present name in 1978. The station takes its name from Takarachō, a neighborhood that was named in 1931. The neighborhood's name disappeared in 1978 when Takarachō merged with neighboring Kyōbashi, but the station continues to use the old name.

Trains of all service classes except airport service stop at Takarachō.
