The Hakozaki Line (箱崎線 Hakozaki-sen?) is a subway line, part of the Fukuoka City Subway system in Fukuoka, Japan. It runs from Nakasu-Kawabata, Hakata Ward to Kaizuka, Higashi Ward, all within Fukuoka. The line's color on maps is blue. Officially, the line is called Line 2 (Hakozaki Line) (2号線(箱崎線) Ni-gō-sen (Hakozaki-sen)?). Like other Fukuoka City Subway lines, stations are equipped with automatic platform gates, and trains are automatically operated by ATO system.

The line has a through service with Kūkō Line. Half of its trains go through Kūkō Line, while another half terminate within Hakozaki Line.
