The Nankai 2300 series (南海2300系?) is a two-car electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the private railway operator Nankai Electric Railway in Japan since 2005.[1]


The 2300 series design was developed from the earlier 2000 series EMUs first introduced in 1990.[1] The car bodies are stainless steel, with fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) cab ends.[1]


As of 1 April 2012, the fleet consists of four two-car sets formed as shown below.[2]

Designation Mc1 Mc2
Numbering 2300 2350

The two cars are each fitted with one single-arm pantograph.[2]

Each set has a sticker depicting a different flower on the body side as follows.[1]


Passenger accommodation consists of transverse seating arranged 2+1 abreast with seat backs that can be flipped over to face the direction of travel, and longitudinal bench seats at the ends of the cars.[2]
