The Namboku Line (南北線 Namboku-sen) is one of two lines of Kobe Rapid Transit Railway (0.4 km). It is fully operated by Kobe Electric Railway and has only two stations. This short stretch of track is important, however, as it connects the Kobe Electric Railway to Shinkaichi, allowing Shintetsu passengers to transfer directly to Hankyū and Hanshin trains bound for Sannomiya and Umeda, and Sanyo line trains bound for Himeji. As it is only used by Shintetsu rolling stock, the line is narrow gauge.
