Namba Station (難波駅, なんば駅 Nanba-eki) is a name of two railway stations in the Namba district of Chūō-ku, Osaka, Japan. One is owned by Nankai Electric Railway and the other is by Osaka Municipal Transportation Bureau. The names of both stations are written in hiragana on signage within the stations, because kanji "難波" can be also read "Naniwa". However, the name of both stations officially employs kanji, printed on train tickets.

They are close to JR Namba Station and Ōsaka Namba Station.

The Midōsuji Line station originally opened as an island platform serving two tracks, but overcrowding prompted construction of a side platform serving northbound trains (that platform opened in 1987). As of 2015, the island platform serves only southbound trains, and the northbound side of the island platform is fenced off.
