Abiko Station (我孫子駅 あびこ駅 Abiko-eki?, M27) is a train station on the Osaka Municipal Subway Midosuji Line in Sumiyoshi-ku, Osaka, Japan. Abiko is situated on the southern city limits, with the Yamato River separating it from Sakai city. Abiko Station is the nearest stop for Osaka City University. The station name is written in hiragana, because 我孫子 is difficult to read in kanji and has a negative meaning in Chinese language to speak ill of other people.
