The Jōmō Line (上毛線 Jōmō-sen) is a railway line in Gunma Prefecture, Japan, operated by Jōmō Electric Railway Company(上毛電気鉃道 Jōmō dentetsu) . Its terminus stations are in the cities of Maebashi and Kiryū, extending 25.4 km. Eighteen of its stations opened on November 10, 1928, with one station added in each of the years 1933, 1939, 1993, and 1994.
The entire line opened in 1928, electrified at 1500 VDC, to service the local silk industry. The line was noted for operating freight services with its EMUs acting as the locomotive (it did not own electric locomotives), and for carriages that had 50% of the floorspace partitioned for the transport of silk.
Freight services ceased in 1986.
All stations are in Gunma Prefecture.
