The Minamichita Road (南知多道路?, Minamichita Dōro) is a 4-laned expressway, toll road in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It is managed by Aichi Prefectural Road Public Corporation.


Officially the road is designated as Aichi Prefectural Route 7. The road is designated for motor vehicles only (自動車専用道路?, Jidōsha Senyō Dōro) (motor vehicles must have a displacement of at least 125 cc), and the design standard of the road is similar to national expressways.

The road connects the southern portion of the Chita Peninsula with Nagoya through the Chitahantō Road. A toll plaza formerly separated these two roads since the Chitahantō Road was administered by Japan Highway Public Corporation, however since the administration of that road was transferred to Aichi Prefectural Road Public Corporation the toll plaza has been abandoned and a unified toll structure has been implemented.
