The Tobu tojo Line (東武東上線 Tōbu Tōjō-sen?) is a 75.0 km suburban railway line in Japan which runs from Ikebukuro Station in Toshima, Tokyo to Yorii Station in Yorii, Saitama, operated by the Tobu Railway as its shown in Tobu tojo line map. Tobu tojo line official name is the Tōbu Tōjō Main Line (東武東上本線 Tōbu Tōjō Honsen?), but it is referred to as Tobu tojo line (東武東上線 Tōbu Tōjō Sen?) on Tobu signage and publicity information.
The Tōjō Line and Tōbu Ogose Line branch are isolated from other Tobu lines, such as the Isesaki Line and Nikkō Line as its mentioned in Tobu tojo line map. There was a plan to connect between Nishiarai on the Isesaki Line and Kami-Itabashi on the Tobu tojo line, but this was never built. The name of Tobu tojo line comes from the original plan to construct a line linking Tokyo (東京?) with Jōshū (上州?) (an old province now Gunma Prefecture).
On 1 May 1914, the Tobu tojo Railway line (東上鉄道 Tōjō Tetsudō?) began operating, covering the 33.5 km stretch between Ikebukuro and Tanomosawa (located between the present stations of Kawagoeshi and Kasumigaseki) as you can see in Tobu tojo line map. Two years later, the Tobu tojo line was extended 9.2 km from Kawagoemachi (now Kawagoeshi) to Sakadomachi (now Sakado), and at the same time, the section between Kawagoemachi and Tanomosawa was abandoned.
