Chiyoda Line Tokyo Subway

The Chiyoda Line is a Tokyo subway line that connects seamlessly at both ends to the Odakyu Line to the west and the Joban Line to the east.

The Chiyoda Line is an important link between the Joban Line in the north-east, which goes all the way up the east coast of Honshu, and the Odakyu Odawara Line in the south-west, which goes to the famous tourist areas of Hakone, in one direction, and Kamakura, in another.

The Chiyoda Line is operated by Tokyo Metro (as opposed to the other subway line operator, Toei). It is subway line no.9, its station numbers are prefixed with the letter C, and its color on subway maps is green. It is named after Chiyoda ward, which is the area centered on the Imperial Palace and where six of the line's stations are located.
