JR Saikyo Line

jump to:   hotels  -  tours

The Saikyo Line (鋞, Saikyō-sen) connects southern Saitama Prefecture with Akabane, Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Osaki.

Between Ikebukuro and Osaki, the Saikyo Line runs parallel to the Yamanote Line, but stops only at Shinjuku, Shibuya and Ebisu Stations. North of Tokyo, some trains run as far as Kawagoe.

While the Saikyo Line technically ends at Osaki Station, many trains on the Saikyo Line continue to run on the Rinkai Line from Osaki to Odaiba, before terminating at Shin-Kiba. Note, that the Rinkai Line is not owned by JR, which means that the Japan Rail Pass and similar JR tickets are not valid on it.

Below are more details about the stations of the Saikyo Line in their actual order.
