Banshū-Akō Station (播州赤穂駅 Banshū-Akō-eki?) is a railway station on the Akō Line of JR West, located in Ako, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan. The prefix Banshū, indicating the station's location in the old Harima province, was given to distinguish the station from Akaho Station (赤穂駅 Akaho-eki?) on the Iida Line in Nagano Prefecture (now Komagane Station), which used the same kanji characters as Akō.

Banshū-Akō is a terminal station for all Akō Line trains; this is the western terminus for trains from Himeji and JR Kobe Line, and the eastern terminus for trains bound for Okayama Station.
