Yamada-Kamiguchi Station (山田上口駅?, Yamada-Kamiguchi-eki) is a railway station in Ise, Mie Prefecture, Japan, operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central). The station is 13.2 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Sangū Line at Taki Station.


Yamada-Kamiguchi Station opened on December 31, 1893 as Tsujikaibashi Station (筋向橋駅?, Tsujikaibashi-eki) on the privately owned Sangū Railway, The line was nationalized on October 1, 1907, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR), which became the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. The station was renamed to its present name after a complaint was lodged to the Railway Ministry by the mayor of Uji-yamada, stating that the name was difficult to read, and that the bridge in question was an insignificantly small landmark located over 300 meters from the station. The station has been unattended since December 21, 1983. The station was absorbed into the JR Central network upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987.
