Yabe Station (矢部駅? Yabe-eki) is a commuter railway station on the East Japan Railway Company's Yokohama Line located in Chūō Ward, Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is 29.2 kilometers from the terminus of the Yokohama Line at Higashi-Kanagawa Station.
Yabe Station originated as a temporary stop for personnel working on the freight operations associated with the United States military Sagami Fuel Depot, whose trains used the Yokohama Line tracks. The stop was upgraded to a train station on October 1, 1957 on the Japan National Railway (JNR). The station building was rebuilt in October 1979. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the operational control of JR East.
Yabe Station is an elevated station with a single island platform serving two tracks. The station is attended, but its operation is consigned to East Japan Eco Access Co., Ltd.
