Hankai Line near Shukuin Station in Sakai, October 2007

The Hankai Line (阪堺電車阪堺線 Hankai Densha Hankai-sen?) is a tramway in the cities of Osaka and Sakai, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. Hankai Tramway Co., Ltd. owns and operates the line.

The line's name comes from Osaka (大阪?) (the kanji character for saka is also pronounced han) and Sakai (?) (whose kanji contributed the kai).

History[edit]

The Hankai Line has its origin in the Hankai Tramway Co., Ltd., founded in 1910. In 1915 the company merged with the Nankai Railway which runs north and south in Osaka. As motorization developed as an alternative form of transportation, trams lost their passengers. In 1980, it split from Nankai.
