The Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line (東京地下鉄日比谷線 Tōkyō Chikatetsu Hibiya-sen) is a metro line in Tokyo, Japan, owned and operated by Tokyo Metro. The Hibiya line was named after the district of Hibiya, under which it passes. The Hibiya Line runs between Naka-Meguro in Meguro and Kita-Senju in Adachi as its shown in Hibiya line map. The Hibiya Line was the fourth subway line built in Tokyo after the Ginza Line, Marunouchi Line and Toei Asakusa Line. Hibiya line basic plan was drawn up by a Ministry of Transportation committee in 1957.
Hibiya line path is somewhat similar to that of the Ginza Line; however, the Hibiya Line was designed to serve a number of important districts, such as Ebisu, Roppongi, Tsukiji, Kayabachō and Senju, which were not on an existing line as its mentioned in Hibiya line map. There is through service onto the Tōkyū Tōyoko Line for Kikuna and the Tōbu Isesaki Line for Tōbu-Dōbutsu-Kōen.
According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation, as of June 2009 the Hibiya Line is the eighth most crowded subway line in Tokyo, running at 164% capacity between Minowa and Iriya stations as you can see in Hibiya line map. On maps, diagrams and signboards, the Hibiya line is shown using the color "silver" (▉), and its stations are given numbers using the letter H.
