Aburakawa Station (油川駅 Aburakawa-eki?) is a railway station on the JR East Tsugaru Line located in the city of Aomori, Aomori Prefecture, Japan. It is 6.0 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Tsugaru Line at Aomori Station. The station is a kan'i itaku station, administered by Aomori Station, and operated by the local Jaster Corporation, with point-of-sales terminal installed. Ordinary tickets, express tickets, and reserved-seat tickets for all JR lines are on sale.


Aburakawa Station was opened on December 5, 1951 as a station on the Japanese National Railways (JNR). Freight operations were discontinued from July 1970. The station became a kan'i itaku station on April 1, 1971, operated by the Japan Travel Bureau. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East, and was operated by JR East until October 1, 2003, when it again became a kan'i itaku station, this time under the Jaster Corporation.
