The line first opened as the Chiba Prefectural Railway Noda Line (千葉県営鉄道野田線 Chiba Ken'ei Tetsudō Noda-sen ) on 9 May 1911, from Kashiwa to Nodamachi (now Nodashi), a distance of 9 miles 10 chains (14.7 km) using steam haulage. In 1923, the line was privatized and the operator was named Hokusō Railway (北総鉄道 Hokusō Tetsudō ) (separate from the present Hokusō Railway), and also opened its own line from Funabashi Station to Kashiwa Station, a distance of 19.6 km (12 mi 14 ch).
Later the company stretched the line to Ōmiya gradually, entering the Musashi Province. Thus it changed its name in 1929 to Sōbu Railway (総武鉄道 Sōbu Tetsudō ) (not to confuse with the present Sōbu Main Line). Present stretch was made in 1930 with the completion of the bridge over the Edo River.
On 1 March 1944, the company merged with the Tobu Railway. 6-car trains were introduced from November 1972, according to the increase of passenger.
Electrification was commenced in 1929 between Kasukabe and Ōmiya, and the entire line was electrified by 1 March 1947.
All trains are operated as Locals, stopping at all stations. Most trains, excluding a few from/to train depots, originate or terminate at Kashiwa Station which has a switchback. Daytime, 6 trains run in an hour. All trains stop at all stations.
