The Seto Line (瀬戸線 Seto-sen) is a Japanese railway line which connects Sakaemachi Station in Higashi-ku, Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture with Owari Seto Station in Seto, Aichi. It is owned and operated by Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu).


The Seto Automatic Railway Co. opened the Owari Seto - Yada section in 1905, and extended it to Ozone the following year. The passenger service was provided by steam powered railcars, but as these proved to be underpowered, the line was electrified in 1907 at 600 VDC, the company changing its name to Seto Electric Railway Co. at that time.

In 1911 the line was extended to Horikawa (since closed), and the Horikawa - Ozone section was duplicated in 1914. The Ozone - Owari Seto section was duplicated between 1921 and 1929.

In 1939 the company merged with Meitetsu. The Horikawa - Shimizu section closed in 1976 to allow for the construction of the new line to Sakaemachi and the connection to the Nagoya Subway Higashiyama Line, which opened in 1978, the voltage on the line being raised to 1500 VDC, and freight services ceasing the same year.
