Yakō Station (矢向駅 Yakō-eki?) is a railway station operated by JR East's Nambu Line located in Tsurumi Ward of Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan. It is 2.6 kilometers from the terminus of the Nambu Line at Kawasaki Station.
Yakō Station opened as a station on the Nambu Railway on March 9, 1927. A spur line to Kawasaki-Gashi Freight Terminal opened at the same time. The Nambu Railway was nationalized on April 1, 1944 becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR) system, which became the Japanese National Railways (JNR) from 1949. Freight services on the spur line were discontinued on May 25, 1972. Along with privatization and division of JNR, JR East started operating the station on April 1, 1987.
Yakō Station has a single side platform and an island platform serving three tracks, connected by an overpass. The station is attended, but its operation is consigned to East Japan Eco Access Co., Ltd. Platform 1 for descending traffic is on the west side of the station, alongside the station building, and ascending Platforms 2 and 3 are connected with an overpass.
