Kegi Station (毛木駅, Kegi Eki) is a former JR West Kabe Line station located in Iimuro, Asa-machi, Asakita-ku, Hiroshima, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. The station is located near Jinshin Bridge, and was going to be named after the bridge. However, when it came time to name the station, the residents in the area wanted it named Kegi, after the area in which it was located. It closed on December 1, 2003, when operation of the line was discontinued/suspended between Kabe Station and Sandankyō Station.
