Uozaki Station (魚崎駅 Uozaki-eki?) is a partially elevated railway station on the Hanshin Electric Railway Main Line, just east of Sumiyoshi River, Japan. Trains travel east to Hanshin's terminal in Umeda (Osaka), and west to central Kobe (Motomachi and Sannomiya). At Motomachi, a number of limited express trains carry on along the Sanyo Railway to Himeji city.

It is also possible to change at this station for the Rokko Liner, an automated monorail-like system from JR Sumiyoshi to Rokko Island. The two stations of Uozaki are linked by a covered walkway.
