The Sakai Line (境線 Sakai-sen?) is a railway line operated by West Japan Railway Company (JR West) in Tottori Prefecture, Japan. The line connects Yonago and Sakaiminato.

History[edit]

The entire line opened in 1902. The section to Goto was electrifed in 1982, and freight services ceased in 1986.

In 2008 the Oshinozu station was closed and the line relocated 800m east to service the Yonago Airport, with the new station named accordingly.
