The Hiromi Line (広見線 Hiromi-sen?) is a Japanese railway line operated by Nagoya Railroad that connects Inuyama Station in Inuyama, Aichi to Mitake Station in Mitake, Gifu. From 2007, all stations from Inuyama to Shin Kani accept the Tranpass prepaid magnetic card.
In 1920 the Tobi Railway Co. opened the Shinkani - Hiromi section as a 762mm gauge light railway. In 1928 the line was converted to 1067mm gauge, electrified at 600 VDC and extended to Inuyama. The company merged with Meitetsu in 1943.
The voltage was raised to 1500 VDC in 1965, and the Inuyama - Shinkani section was duplicated between 1967 and 1970. Freight services ceased in 1982.
