The Shonan Shinjuku Line (湘南新宿ライン, Shōnan Shinjuku Line) provides a direct connection from Shinjuku to Yokohama, Kamakura and the Shonan area of Kanagawa Prefecture south of Tokyo, as well as Saitama, Gunma and Tochigi prefectures north of Tokyo.

Between Ikebukuro and Osaki, the Shonan Shinjuku Line runs parallel to the Yamanote Line, but stops only at Shinjuku, Shibuya and Ebisu stations.

Roughly every second train on the Shonan Shinjuku Line operates as rapid train (kaisoku). Between Osaki and Totsuka, rapid trains stop only at Musashi-Kosugi and Yokohama. Special rapid trains (tokubetsu kaisoku; roughly one out of four trains) additionally skip Ebisu Station.
