Hongō-sanchōme Station (本郷三丁目駅 Hongō-sanchōme-eki?) is a railway station in Bunkyō, Tokyo, Japan, jointly operated by the Tokyo subway operators Tokyo Metro and Toei Subway. Part of the station originally lay within the Hongō-sanchōme district of Bunkyō Ward when the station was first opened, but following rezoning in 1965, the address of the station became Hongō-nichōme.


There is no direct connection between the platforms, so transfers require surfacing and re-entering. It is easier to change at Korakuen.
