Narumi-juku (鳴海宿 Narumi-juku?) was the fortieth of the fifty-three stations of the Tōkaidō. It is located in former Owari Province in what is now part of the Midori-ku section of the city of Nagoya, in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.
The classic ukiyoe print by Ando Hiroshige (Hoeido edition) from 1831 to 1834 depicts travellers passing by open-fronted shops selling tie-died cloth, typically used for making yukata summer kimono, which was a local speciality of the region. The railroad bypassed Narumi-juku in the Meiji period, and a portion of the old town is preserved as a tourist attraction.
