The Keio 5000 series (京王5000系?) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type which was formerly operated by Keio Corporation in Japan and first introduced in 1963. Built in batches by Nippon Sharyo, Tokyu Car Corp and Hitachi, it was the recipient of the 4th Laurel Prize of the Japan Railfan Club.
All units were withdrawn from Keio services by December 1996, and a number of units have since been converted for use on other lines throughout Japan.
