Inbi Line (因美線 Inbi-sen?) is a railway line operated by West Japan Railway Company (JR West) between Tottori, Tottori Prefecture and Tsuyama, Okayama Prefecture, Japan.


The Inbi line was built by the Japanese Government Railway, with the first section opened from Tottori to Mochigase in 1919, extended to Chizu in 1923.

The Tsuyama - Mimasaka-Kamo section opened in 1928, extended to Mimasaka-Kawai in 1931 and the line was completed with the opening of the section to Chizu (including a 3077m tunnel) in 1932.

CTC signalling was commissioned between Tottori and Chizu in 1994.
