The Miyafuku Line (宮福線 Miyafuku-sen?) is a railway line of Kitakinki Tango Railway in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan.

History[edit]

Building of the line was approved in 1953, with construction commencing in 1966, but being suspended in 1980 due to the financial constraints being experienced by JNR at the time.

In 1982 the Miyafuku Railway Co. was established to recommence construction, which resumed the following year.

The Fucuchiyama - Miyazu line opened in 1988, featuring 10 tunnels, including the 3215m Hiroshikabuto, the 2175m Shimoamazu and the 2103m Tochi-Yo. The following year the company renamed itself the North Kansai (Kita Kinki in Japanese) Tango Railway Co.

The line was electrified in 1996 to enable through running with the JR Fukuchiyama Line
