Mikunigaoka Station (三国ヶ丘駅 (Nankai) / 三国ケ丘駅 (JR West) Mikunigaoka-eki?) is a junction between the West Japan Railway Company (JR West) Hanwa Line and the Nankai Electric Railway Koya Line. While It is served by JR rapid trains, only Nankai semi-express train and local trains serve this stop. It is an example of the competition arising where different companies serve the same station.

Mi means 3 in Japanese, while kuni means "nation", "ga" is an archaic genetive particle and oka means "hill".

Mikunigoaka is part of Sakai-ku, Sakai, Osaka. Sakai itself is much older than Osaka, and Mikunigaoka is near the ancient tombs in Mozu.

Mikunigoaka itself is nondescript, not having many shops or other landmarks.
