Sakane Station (坂根駅, Sakane-eki) is a JR West Geibi Line station in Shimokōjiro, Shingō, Niimi, Okayama Prefecture, Japan.


Sakane Station was opened on February 10, 1930, with the creation of the Sanshin Line between Yagami Station and Bitchū Kōjiro Station. It became part of JR West in 1987 when Japan National Railways was privatized. An enclosed waiting room was constructed in 2004 for the convenience of passengers.
