History[edit]

The Tosa Kuroshio Railway was established on 8 May 1986 for the purpose of resuming construction of the Sukumo and Asa lines, which had been planned by JNR but abandoned.[1] The company acquired a license to operate the Sukumo Line in February 1987, and commenced construction of the line, which opened on 1 October 1997.[1]
