Sasago Station (笹子駅 Sasago-eki?) is a railway station of Chūō Main Line, East Japan Railway Company (JR East), in Sasago-Kuronoda, in the city of Ōtsuki, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan. The station is 100.4 rail kilometers from Tokyo Station.


Sasago Station was opened on February 1, 1903 as station on the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) Chūō Main Line. The JGR became the JNR (Japanese National Railways) after the end of World War II. Scheduled freight services were discontinued from April 1963. The station has been unattended since March 1985. With the dissolution and privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of the East Japan Railway Company. Automated turnstiles using the Suica IC Card system came into operation from October 16, 2004.


Sasago Station has a single island platform connected to the station building by an underpass.
