The Keihin Tohoku Line (京浜東北線 Keihin-tōhoku-sen), is a railway line in Japan which connects the cities of Saitama, Kawaguchi, Tokyo, Kawasaki, and Yokohama as its shown in Keihin tohoku line map. Keihin tohoku line is part of the East Japan Railway Company (JR East) network. Keihin tohoku line name is derived from the characters for Tokyo (東京?), Yokohama (横浜?) and the Keihin tohoku Main Line (東北本線?). The Keihin-Tōhoku Line officially follows portions of the Tohoku Main Line and Tōkaidō Main Line. Between Ueno and Akabane stations the Keihin-Tohoku and Tohoku Main lines are physically separate and thus alternate routes.
The Keihin tohoku line opened in 1914 as an electrified passenger line connecting Tokyo Station with Takashimacho Station in Yokohama. All Keihin tohoku line trains have through service onto the Negishi Line between Yokohama and Ōfuna stations as its mentioned in Keihin tohoku line map. As a result, the entire service between Ōmiya and Ōfuna is typically referred to as the Keihin-Tohoku—Negishi Line (京浜東北線・根岸線?) on system maps and in-train station guides. Keihin tohoku line —Negishi Line trains are recognizable by their light blue stripe (the line color on maps is also light blue).
Keihin tohoku line trains run every 2–3 minutes at peak hours, every 5 minutes during the daytime, and less frequently the rest of the time. In most instances, Keihin tohoku line trains are classified as futsū (local), stopping at all stations en-route as you can see in Keihin tohoku line map. However, during the daytime, trains are classified as kaisoku (rapid). These rapid trains skip some stations in central Tokyo, where it runs parallel to the Yamanote Line.
