Asahi-mae Station (旭前駅 Asahi-mae-eki?) is a railway station operated by Meitetsu's Seto Line located in Owariasahi, Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is located 13.1 rail kilometers from terminus of the line at Sakaemachi Station.[1] This station provides access to the headquarters of Asahi-Seiki Manufacturing.


Asahi-mae Station was opened on April 2, 1905, as Tsunboishi Station (聾石 Tsunboishi-eki?) on the privately operated Seto Electric Railway. The Seto Electric Railway was absorbed into the Meitetsu group on September 1, 1939. The station was renamed to its present name in 1942. A new station building was completed in April 1985. The station has been unattended since 2006.
