nihongo|Shin-Kōbe station|新神戸駅|Shin-Kōbe-eki is a train station located on the Sanyō Shinkansen line serving the city of Kobe, Japan and the surrounding area. It is located to the north of Kobe city centre, at the foot of Mount Rokkō. The Shinkansen trains mostly run inside tunnels under the mountains in this area. The station exists in a small space in between two long tunnels (Rokkō and Kobe Tunnels).

This station was newly built for the Sanyō Shinkansen and is connected with the city center by the municipal subway. Many passengers from central Kobe however use Shin-Ōsaka Station to the east instead of Shin-Kobe Station to ride on the Shinkansen because, although Shin-Kōbe station is closer, it is often more convenient to use Shin-Ōsaka Station which is easily accessible by JR Kobe Line and more trains leave at Shin-Ōsaka for Tokyo, the capital of the country.
