Janson is a Charleroi Metro station, located in downtown Charleroi, in fare zone 1. It is an underground station featuring a central platform, with street access at both ends.

Interior decoration, designed by architect Jean Yernaux, is themed around the Belgian comics characters from Dupuis Publishing, a well-known Belgian comics publishing company based in Marcinelle (part of the Charleroi municipality).

The station and the nearby Paul Janson Boulevard are named after Belgian politician Paul Janson.
