Kawabe Station (川部駅 Kawabe-eki?) is a joint use railway station on the JR East northern Ōu Main Line and Gonō Line located in the town of Inakadate, Aomori Prefecture Japan. It is 453.4 rail kilometers from the southern terminus of the Ōu Main Line at Fukushima Station, and is the northern terminus of the Gonō Line.
Kawabe Station was opened on December 1, 1894 as a station on the Japanese Government Railways, the predecessor to the Japan National Railways (JNR) on the Ōu Northern Line. From August 15, 1912, a spur line became operations to Kuroishi, and from September 25, 1918, the Mutsu Railways (present-day Gonō Line) began operations from Kawabe Station. On November 1, 1984, operations on the Kuroishi Line were transferred from JNR to the Konan Railway. All freight operations were discontinued from April 1987. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, it came under the operational control of JR East. The Kuroishi Line ceased operations from April 1, 1998.
