Naha Kūkō Station (那覇空港駅? Naha-kūkō-eki, lit. "Naha Airport Station") is a railway station on the Okinawa Monorail in Naha, Okinawa, Japan. It is the westernmost station in Japan, and the southernmost airport station in the country.
The station has two platforms, though platform 2 is for the most part only used during rush hour. The station is connected directly to the second floor of Naha Airport via an elevated pedestrian bridge with a moving walkway.
The station opened on 10 August 2003. A plaque officially marking it as the westernmost station in the country was unveiled on 12 July the following year. The traditional Okinawan folksong "Tanchamee" (谷茶前?) is used as the chime to announce the arrival and departure of trains.
The station is the terminal of the Okinawa Monorail.
