Tenkūbashi Station (天空橋駅? Tenkūbashi-eki) is a railway station in Ōta, Tokyo, Japan, operated jointly by Tokyo Monorail and the private railway operator Keikyu. It is named after a nearby pedestrian bridge that was completed in 1993.
Tenkūbashi Station is served by the 6.5 km Keikyu Airport Line from Keikyu Kamata to Haneda Airport Domestic Terminal, and lies 3.3 km from the starting point of the line at Keikyu Kamata. It is also served by the 17.8 km Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport Line from Monorail Hamamatsuchō in central Tokyo to Haneda Airport Terminal 2, and lies 12.6 km from the northern terminus of the line at Monorail Hamamatsuchō. Only "Local" all-stations services stop at this station.
Each of the Keikyu and Tokyo Monorail sections of the station has two side platforms serving two tracks. Both lines are underground.

The station replaced two earlier stations: the original Haneda Airport Station (羽田空港駅?), which served as the southern terminal station of the Keikyu Airport Line from 1956 to 1991 (but was located a considerable distance from the terminal and only had local service to Kamata), and the former Tokyo Monorail Haneda Station (羽田駅?), which opened on 17 September 1964 underneath the domestic terminal at Haneda Airport and was the main rapid transit access between Haneda and downtown Tokyo.
The new "Big Bird" domestic terminal at Haneda Airport opened on a new site in 1993, requiring an extension of both lines. Keikyu closed its airport access line in January 1991 and opened a new Haneda Station (羽田駅?) at the present site of Tenkūbashi Station on 1 April 1993, which became the interim terminal for the Keikyu Airport Line. The Tokyo Monorail was extended to the new terminal on 27 September 1993, and Haneda Station was concurrently relocated to the new Keikyu station site in order to allow transfers between the two lines. The station was renamed Tenkūbashi Station on 18 November 1998, at the time of the Keikyu extension to Haneda Airport Station, in order to avoid confusion with the latter.
In fiscal 2011, the Keikyu station was used by an average of 18,613 passengers daily, and the Tokyo Monorail station was used by an average of 9,752 passengers daily.
