Kakegawa Station (掛川駅, Kakegawa-eki) is an interchange railway station in the city of Kakegawa, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan, jointly operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Tōkai). It is connected to the adjacent Tenryū-Hamanako Railway Kakegawa Station, which is located in a separate building.


Kakegawa Station is served by the Tōkaidō Shinkansen and the Tōkaidō Main Line and is 229.3 kilometers (142.5 mi) from Tokyo Station. It is also the terminus for the Tenryū Hamanako Railroad Tenryū Hamanako Line and is located 67.7 kilometers (42.1 mi) from the opposing terminus at Shinjohara Station.


JR Kakegawa Station has five platforms serving eight tracks. The Tōkaidō Main Line Track 1 is served by a side platform connected to the main station building's north exit and the Tenryū Hamanako Line station. It is used for departing both east and west. Track 2 and Track 3 are served by an island platform. Both platforms are connected to the station building by an underpass, which also connects to the two elevated side platforms used by the Shinkansen (Track 4 and Track 5, with two additional centre tracks for non-stop passing trains). The north side of the station is a wooden structure dating from 1940. The station building has automated ticket machines, TOICA automated turnstiles and a staffed ticket office.
