Seki Station (関駅 Seki-eki?) is a railway station in Kameyama, Mie, Japan. It is located 65.6 rail kilometres from the terminus of the Kansai Main Line at Nagoya Station and 5.7 rail kilometers from Kameyama Station.

History[edit]

Seki Station was opened on December 25, 1890 with the extension of the Kansai Railway from Yokkaichi Station to Tsuge Station. The Kansai Railway was nationalized on October 1, 1907, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railway (JGR), which became the JNR (Japan National Railways) after World War II. Freight operations were discontinued from April 1, 1972. With the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987, the station came under the control of JR West.
