Onoe (尾上町, Onoe-machi) was a town located in Minamitsugaru District in central Aomori Prefecture, Japan.

Onoe Village was founded on April 1, 1889. It was elevated to town status on April 1, 1937. It merged with neighboring Saruga Village on January 1, 1955 and annexed a portion of Inakadate Village on June 10, 1956.

On January 1, 2006, Onoe, along with the town of Hiraka, and the village of Ikarigaseki (all from Minamitsugaru District), was merged to create the new city of Hirakawa, and thus no longer exists as an independent municipality.

At the time of its merger, Onoe had an estimated population of 10,102 and a population density of 535.35 persons per km2. The total area was 18.87 km2.

Ikarigaseki was served by Route 102 (Japan) highway, and by two stations on the Kōnan Railway Kōnan Line.
