Ujiyamada Station (宇治山田駅 Ujiyamada-eki?) is a railway station on the Kintetsu Yamada Line and the Kintetsu Toba Line in Ise, Mie, Japan, operated by the private operator Kintetsu. It is the closest station to Ise Grand Shrine and thus has an important role for tourists and pilgrims.
The station also administrates the section between Kushida Station and Isuzugawa Station.
Ujiyamada Station has one side platform and one bay platform serving a total of four tracks. The platforms are on the third floor of the station building. The only entrance to the building is on the west of the first floor. A royal suite is located in the second floor. Originally a penthouse on the building's east end, it was used as a fire watch tower, and became the firefighting headquarters of postwar Ise.

Ujiyamada Station was opened as the terminal station of the Sangu Kyuko Electric Railway on March 17, 1931. On March 15, 1941, the line merged with Osaka Electric Railway to become a station on Kansai Kyuko Railway's Yamada Line.  This line in turn was merged with the Nankai Electric Railway on June 1, 1944 to form Kintetsu. Services to Nagoya began on January 20, 1920, and the line was extended from Ujiyamada to Isuzugawa Station on December 15, 1969.  In 2001, the station building was named a Registered Tangible Cultural Properties by the national government.
