Taki (多伎町?, Taki-chō) was a town located in Hikawa District, Shimane Prefecture, Japan.

As of 2003, the town had an estimated population of 4,096 and a density of 74.27 persons per km². The total area was 55.15 km². It is located on the Sea of Japan.

On March 22, 2005, Taki, along with the city of Hirata, the towns of Koryō, Sada and Taisha (all from Hikawa District), was merged into the expanded city of Izumo.

Although now part of the city, officially, it is separated from the main part of Izumo by a drive or train ride of about 20 minutes.

It has a sister city, which is Kalajoki, Finland. It has a highway rest stop with Finnish-style architecture and two large electric windmills.[1]
