The Keihin-Tohoku Line (京浜東北線, Keihin-Tōhoku-sen) is a local train line serving central Tokyo and the neighboring prefectures of Saitama and Kanagawa, including Saitama City in the north and Kawasaki and Yokohama in the south.
In central Tokyo between Tabata and Shinagawa, the Keihin-Tohoku Line runs parallel to the Yamanote Line. Some trains on the Keihin-Tohoku Line operate as rapid trains (kaisoku), which stop only at Ueno, Akihabara, Kanda and Tokyo between Tabata and Hamamatsucho.
South of Yokohama Station, the Keihin-Tohoku Line is also known as the Negishi Line, serving central and southern Yokohama before terminating at Ofuna, a large station on the border to Kamakura. Note that there are faster connections between Tokyo and Yokohama than the Keihin-Tohoku Line.
Below are more details about the stations of the Keihin-Tohoku Line in their actual order. Stations not served by rapid trains are colored lighter than the stations served by all trains.
