The Domyoji Line (道明寺線, Dōmyōji-sen) is a single-tracked, 2.2 km short railway line operated by Kintetsu Railway, connecting Dōmyōji Station in the city of Fujiidera and Kashiwara Station in Kashiwara, both in Osaka Prefecture.
The line is the oldest in the Kintetsu railway network. Initially steam-powered, the line was built and opened in 1898 by the Kayō Railway (河陽鉄道, Kayō tetsudō), whose plan was to connect towns of southern Kawachi Province to the then main line of the Osaka Railway (大阪鉄道, Osaka tetsudō),  present-day Kansai Main Line.
In the following year, the whole railway from Kashiwara to Tondabayashi  was transferred to the Kanan Railway (河南鉄道, Kanan tetsudō), who extended the line to Nagano (present Kawachi-Nagano ) in 1902.
With its name changed to the Osaka Railway  in 1919, the company built its own railway directly to Osaka's downtown, diverting at Dōmyōji. The new line opened in 1923 to Osaka Tennōji (大阪天王寺) (present Ōsaka Abenobashi) with 1,500 V DC electrified, the first in Japan. Then the railway line between Dōmyōji and Kashiwara became a short branch line of the network.
In 1943, the predecessor of Kintetsu, the Kansai Express Railway (関西急行鉄道, Kansai kyūkō tetsudō) merged the company. In 1944 it renamed itself Kintetsu.
All trains are operated as locals between Dōmyōji and Kashiwara. One set of two-car EMU serves the line all day.
All stations are in Osaka Prefecture.
