Tarōbōgū-mae Station (太郎坊宮前駅, Tarōbōgū-mae-eki) is a railway station in Higashiōmi, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. Although the Ohmi Railway Company uses the name Tarōbōgū-mae (long sound for the first "o") on its web page,[1] the actual station signage shown on that page says Tarobōgū-mae (short sound for the first "o") in Japanese script. Both readings may be accepted.


The station was renamed after Tarōbō-gū, also known as Aga-jinja(阿賀神社), a shinto shrine near the station on April 1, 1998. Before the renaming, it was called Tarobō Station (太郎坊駅, Tarobō-eki).[2]



The station has one platform with one track, serving both directions.
