Taki Station (多気駅, Taki-eki) is a railway station in Taki, Taki District, Mie Prefecture, operated by Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central). The station is 42.5 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Kisei line at Kameyama Station and is a terminus for the Sangū Line. Irregular freight services are still operated by the Japan Freight Railway Company.


Taki Station opened on December 31, 1893, as Ōka Station (相可駅, Ōka eki) on the private Sangū Railway. The Sangū Railway was nationalized on October 1, 1907, becoming part of the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) system. On October 20, 1923, the Kisei East Line connected to the station, which was renamed Ōkaguchi Station (相可口駅, Ōkaguchi eki). The JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II, and the station was renamed to its present name on July 15, 1959. Scheduled freight operations were discontinued from February 1, 1984. The station was absorbed into the JR Central network upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987.
