Ōsaka Abenobashi Station (大阪阿部野橋駅, Ōsaka-Abenobashi-eki, station number: F01) is a railway station on Kintetsu Minami Osaka Line in Abeno-ku, Osaka, Japan. The station is also called "Abenobashi Station" (あべの橋駅).

According to the research on November 13, 2012, 159,075 passengers got on and off trains at Ōsaka Abenobashi Station. It was the largest number of passengers getting on and off trains at stations on the Kintetsu Lines.

The west ticket gates of the station were shifted 35 m to the east on March 20, 2009, so that station facilities are entirely within the Kintetsu Abeno department store's "new" (east) building. The "old" (western) portion was demolished to make way for a new high-rise building.[2]
