Akasaka-mitsuke Station (赤坂見附駅 Akasaka-mitsuke-eki?) is a subway station in Minato, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metro.


Akasaka-mitsuke Station is served by the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line and Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line, providing same-platform transfers between the two lines in the same direction (for example eastbound to eastbound). Reversing directions between the lines is also fairly easy as the eastbound lines are stacked above the westbound lines. It is also connected by underground passageways to Nagatacho, which is served by the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line, Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line and Tokyo Metro Namboku Line, and it is possible to transfer between the two stations without passing through the ticket gates.
