Miyoshi Station (三次駅 Miyoshi-eki?) is a railway station in Miyoshi, Hiroshima, Japan, operated by West Japan Railway Company (JR West). Along with Niimi and Tsuyama Stations, Miyoshi is one of the major central region stations in the Chūgoku region of Japan.
Miyoshi Station is a reinforced concrete two-story building, operated by JR West. It features two platforms which handle four lines: one platform next to the station building and an island platform accessible via an enclosed footbridge above the tracks. The station building houses a small convenience store as well as automatic ticket vending machines and a "Midori no Madoguchi" staffed ticket office. There is a large waiting area inside the station building, as well as enclosed and unenclosed waiting areas on the platforms.

The station opened on 1 June 1933, initially named Bingo Tōkaichi Station (備後十日市駅?). On 10 December 1954, the station was renamed Miyoshi. With the privatization of Japanese National Railways (JNR) on 1 April 1987, the station came under the control of JR West.
The turntable located next to the station is scheduled to be sold to the private railway operator Tobu Railway in 2016 and installed next to Kinugawa-Onsen Station in Tochigi Prefecture for use by steam-hauled tourist trains.
