nihongo|Shin-Yatsushiro Station|新八代駅|Shin-Yatsushiro eki is a JR Kyushu railway station located in Yatsushiro, Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan.

The station opened on March 13, 2004, to coincide with the opening of a section of the Kyushu Shinkansen. The Kyushu Shinkansen "Tsubame" is currently operational from Shin-Yatushiro to Kagoshima-Chuo station in Kagoshima; it will eventually extend north to Hakata station in Fukuoka and join with the Sanyo Shinkansen line.

Shin-Yatsushiro also serves regular JR Kagoshima Line trains. A special elevated spur runs from north of the station to the Shinkansen platform. Currently, this spur is used only by "Relay Tsubame" limited express trains from Hakata, and is designed to facilitate an easy and fast connection between the "Relay Tsubame" train and the "Tsubame" shinkansen train on the same platform.
