The Ōtō Line (鴨東線 Ōtō-sen?) is a railway line in Kyoto that was opened on October 5, 1989 by the Keihan Electric Railway. The Ōtō Line re-established a rail connection between the Keihan Main Line and the Eizan Electric Railway, which had been severed when the Kyoto City streetcars ceased running in 1978. The line is operated as an extension of the Keihan Main Line.
The double-track line is situated below Kawabata Street, along the left (eastern) bank of the Kamo River.
