Rapid Railways

Greater Tokyo Metropolitan Area




Yokohama Minatomirai Railway (Minatomirai Line)

A subsidiary of Tokyu Corporation, it owns the Minatomirai Line, a 4.1Km-long all-underground extension of the Tokyu Toyoko Line and the 3.4Km-long Kodomonokuni Line, a single-track rural branchline of Tokyu’s Denentoshi Line.

The Yokohama Minatomirai Railway owns the lines and their rolling stock, but has no personnel of it’s own. Tokyu operates the line with it’s own drivers and conductors instead.
