Mingjian Township (Chinese: 名間鄉; pinyin: Míngjiān Xiāng; Wade–Giles: Ming2-chien1 Xiang1; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Bêng-kan Hiong) is a rural township in western Nantou County, Taiwan. It is the second smallest township in the county, after Jiji Township.
Its name originates from a Japanese transliteration of the Taiwanese word, Lam'a (Chinese: 湳仔; pinyin: nǎnzǎi; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Làm-á), with literal meaning "a very wet place". In 1920, during Japanese rule, the name was changed to Nama (名間?).
In Mingjian there is a leaning unused pylon, which was damaged in an earthquake
