The Kamidaki Line (上滝線, Kamidaki-sen) is a Japanese railway line which connects Minami-Toyama Station in Toyama, Toyama Prefecture with Iwakuraji Station in Tateyama, Toyama Prefecture. It is owned and run by Toyama Chihō Railway. This line and the Toyama Chihō Railway Fujikoshi Line are operated as a single line.

History[edit]

The Toyama Prefectural Government opened the line in 1921, electrifying it at 600 VDC in 1927 and raising the voltage to 1500 VDC in 1937 to match the electrification on the Toyama Chihō Railway Tateyama Line.

The line was merged into the Toyama Chihō Railway Co. upon its creation in 1943.
