The Akita Rinkai Railway Line (秋田臨海鉄道線?, Akita Rinkai Tetsudō-sen) is a Japanese freight-only railway line between Akita Kitakō Freight Terminal and Mukaihama Freight Terminal via Akitakō Freight Terminal, all within Akita, Akita. This is the only railway line Akita Rinkai Railway (秋田臨海鉄道?, Akita Rinkai Tetsudō, "Akita Seaside Railway") operates. The third sector company was founded in 1970. The services on the line are divided by Akitakō Station. The north part is commonly called the North Line (北線?, Kita-sen), and the south part is called the South Line (南線?, Minami-sen). The North Line mainly transports containers of paper products from Nippon Daishōwa Paperboard Tōhoku, while the South Line transports sulfuric acid from Kosaka Smelting & Refining, via the Kosaka Line.
