The Tokyo Metro 7000 series (東京地下鉄7000系? Tōkyō Chikatetsu 7000-kei) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by the Tokyo subway operator Tokyo Metro in Tokyo, Japan, since 1974. The design is based on the earlier Tokyo Metro 6000 series trains used on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line.
7000 series trainsets operate on the following lines.
- Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line (10-car sets)
- Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line (8/10-car sets)
- Tobu Tojo Line between Wakōshi and Shiki (8-car sets) or Kawagoeshi (10-car sets)
- Seibu Yūrakuchō Line
- Seibu Ikebukuro Line between Kotake-Mukaihara and Hannō
- Tokyu Toyoko Line (since 16 March 2013)
- Minatomirai Line (since 16 March 2013)
As of 1 April 2013, the fleet consists of six 10-cars sets and 15 eight-car sets. They are formed as shown below with car 1 at the northern end.
- Cars 3 and 7 are each fitted with two lozenge-type pantographs.
Passenger accommodation consists of longitudinal bench seating throughout. Cars 2 and 9 in the 10-car sets and cars 2 and 7 in the 8-car sets each have a wheelchair space. Priority seating is provided at the end of each car.
The sets originally sported a yellow bodyside line when used on Yurakucho Line services, but were gradually reliveried with brown, gold, and white stripes coinciding with use on Fukutoshin Line services.
Four 7000 series 10-car sets (7117, 7121, 7122, and 7123) were shipped to Indonesia in 2010 for use on suburban services operated by KRL Jabotabek (KCJ) in Jakarta. The four sets were reduced to 8-car formations and are formed as follows, based at Depok Depot.
|7100 (CT1)||7200 (T2)||7300 (M1)||7400 (M2')||7500 (Tc1)||7600 (Tc2)||7900 (M1)||7000 (CM2)|
- The two M1 cars in each set are equipped with two pantographs.
Accidents and incidents

The front two carriages of set 7121 as well as the tank truck were both destroyed in the ensuing fire. As a result of the accident, set 7121 was finally scrapped.
