Tōkyū Setagaya Line


Tōkyū Setagaya Line

The nihongo|Tōkyū Setagaya Line|東急世田谷線|Tōkyū Setagaya-sen is a light rail line that is operated by Tokyu Corporation. It runs from Sangen-Jaya to Shimo-Takaido, entirely within Setagaya, Tokyo.

Unlike other Tōkyū lines that are heavy commuter lines, the Setagaya Line is legally classified as a tramway, although the entire line is located on its own right-of-way. This is a result of the fact that it was a branch line of the former Tamagawa Line (= 玉川線, called "Tama-den", not the same line as the present-day Tōkyū Tamagawa Line = 多摩川線 ), which ran on surface streets between Shibuya and the Tama River.

In Tokyo proper, only this and Toden Arakawa Line are surviving tramways. (There also is Enoshima Electric Railway in the Greater Tokyo Area.) The line has its own smart card system called [http://www.tokyu.co.jp/railway/railway/west/eigyou/setamaru.htm Setamaru] , which cannot be used in other Tōkyū lines. Since March 2007, PASMO has also been accepted on the Setagaya Line as well as other Tokyu lines.
