Seki-juku was the forty-seventh of the fifty-three stations of the Tōkaidō.
It is located in former Ise Province in what is now part of the city of Kameyama, Mie Prefecture, Japan.

The area around Seki-juku was always a major intersection for travel.
During the time of the Jinshin War, it was known as one of the Three Ancient Seki, being called the Ise Suzuka Seki (Ise Suzuka Barrier), and was an administrative checkpoint on the highway to the eastern provinces.
During the Edo period, the area flourished was a lively post town, because both the Isebetsu Kaidō ,a highway for pilgrims to the Ise Grand Shrines and the Yamato Kaidō, a highway for travelers to Yamato Province, intersected here with the Tōkaidō highway. Following the Meiji restoration, Seki-juku became the nucleus for the modern town of Seki, which became part of the city of Kameyama in 2005.

Many of the historical buildings have been preserved and the area has been designated as Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings.
