Miki (三木町 Miki-chō?) is a town located in Kita District, Kagawa Prefecture, Japan.

As of January 2016, the town has an estimated population of 27,835[1] and a density of 367.31 persons per km². The total area is 75.78 km².[2]

The town was formed in October 1954 via a merger of the town of Hirai and the villages of Hikami, Kamiyama, Shimotakaoka and Tanaka.[3] In September 1956 the village of Ido also merged into Miki, but subsequently in November 1959 the residents in the northern area of Ido requested their area be transferred to the town of Nagao (present-day Sanuki city).[3]
