Yabachō Station (矢場町駅?, Yabachō-eki)is an underground metro station located in Naka-ku, Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan operated by the Nagoya Municipal Subway.[1] It is located 2.3 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Meijō Line at Kanayama Station. This station provides access to several department stores in Sakae such as Parco and Matsuzakaya.


Yabachō Station was opened on 30 March 1967.[2] It is named after the historic neighbourhood of Yaba-chō.

At the entrance to the turnstiles, a mechanical water clock by the French scientist Bernard Gitton was installed in the 1990s.[3][4]
