The Watarase Keikoku Line (わたらせ渓谷線 -sen?) is a Japanese railway line between Kiryū Station in Kiryū, Gunma and Matō Station in Nikkō, Tochigi. This is the only railway line that the third-sector company Watarase Keikoku Railway (わたらせ渓谷鐵道 Watarase Keikoku Tetsudō?) operates. The company and line are also known as Watakei (わた渓?) or Watetsu (わ鐵?). The company acquired the line from the East Japan Railway Company (JR East) in 1989. As the name suggests, the line runs along the Watarase River through a deep valley.
