Kawagoe Line[edit]

Kawagoe Line is totally within Saitama Prefecture: I feel it should fall in Kanto category. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17:13, April 4, 2005‎

Looks like all the lines in Kanto region are listed as "Greater Tokyo Area lines". Maybe we should rename the category, or divide it to Greater Tokyo Area and other Kanto region. Kawagoe Line, by the way, is totally within Greater Tokyo, although not within Tokyo proper.--Kzaral 10:35, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
Is Utsunomiya (Nikko Line) really considered part of the greater Tokyo area? It is 100 km north (at least, on the Tohoku Expressway). Also, the Mito Line, and a few others are not so close either. Should Kanto region be separated again? Neier 13:25, 29 July 2006 (UTC)
Yes, Utsunomiya has pretty much always been counted, and JR East counts it as part of the Tokyo area. Should we not go with the company's decision to include it? The service interval between Tokyo and Utsunomiya is quite frequent, so it seems appropriate. JoeD80 (talk) 01:08, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
I separated GTA lines and other Kanto lines. (Yes, I know my reaction isn't terribly quick.) I personally don't think Mito Line is inside GTA, but I followed JR East's designation of 東京近郊区間 (Tokyo Suburban Area). Kzaral 14:59, 1 April 2007 (UTC)
It depends on what you count as the Tokyo area I suppose. I have an old timetable from 1944 which counts lines even farther than the current definition -- all the way up to Shirakawa on the Tohoku Line and Ogawago on the Ban-Etsu-To Line was counted as part of the "Tokyo Area." I think this is part of why people now use "Shutoken" vs. "Tokyo." BTW, JR East is extending the current definition farther. JoeD80 (talk) 01:08, 24 March 2009 (UTC)


I seem to have misread WP:NAME which states "Please note, "company", "international" "group" "industries" or similar suffixes are not legal statuses and should be included as specified by the originating business". If anyone wants to undo the renaming please do so. Shawnc 16:42, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Purpose of edit?[edit]

Hello Azusa2, can you explain this edit? It removed some templates I believe are pertinent. Fg2 (talk) 11:04, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Body of elderly woman found in train station in Tokyo[edit]

This incident may be worth mentioning in this article or one about the station itself. Eastmain (talkcontribs) 15:45, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
