The Mikawa Line (三河線 Mikawa-sen?) is a railway line in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, operated by Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) between Sanage Station in Toyota and Hekinan Station in Hekinan.

All trains on this line operate as Local trains and stop at every station. Some smaller stations have only a single track.

The line was originally owned by Mikawa Railroad, but it merged with Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) in June 1941.[3]
