The Meishō Line (名松線 Meishō-sen?) is a railway line of Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) in Mie Prefecture, Japan, from Matsusaka and Ise-Okitsu stations.

The name takes the kanji characters from the cities of Nabari (?) and Matsusaka (?). Though this line was planned to connect them, the section from Ise-Okitsu to Nabari was never built, due in preceding completion of present Kintetsu Osaka Line.
