The Toyota Line (豊田線 Toyota-sen) is a railway line in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, operated by Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu) connecting Umetsubo Station in Toyota and Akaike Station in Nisshin.

History

First proposed in 1926, the Mikawa Railway Co. commenced construction on the line in 1932, abandoned work in 1937 due to management issues, and merged with Meitetsu in 1941. Construction restarted in 1973 following an agreement for through-running with the Nagoya Subway Tsurumai Line, and the line opened in 1979, dual track and electrified at 1500 VDC.
