    Nine sets (R001 to R009) were delivered to Minami-Fukuoka depot in 1994, originally as two-car sets, entering service from 1 March 1994.

    From March 2003, new 10th-batch SaHa 813-400 centre cars were added to standardize the entire fleet as three-car sets.

    These sets are normally used on the Kagoshima Main Line, Nippō Main Line, Nagasaki Main Line, and Sasebo Line.

    Two-car set R008 was withdrawn together with R101 and R231 after sustaining damage in a head-on collision in February 2002.

    The KuHa 813 car is fitted with one PS400K scissors-type pantograph, and has a toilet. The SaHa 813 car is fitted with a wheelchair space.

    813-100 series

    Thirteen 2nd-batch 813-100 series three-car sets (R101 to R113) were delivered to Minami-Fukuoka depot between January 1995 and March 1996. Six two-car sets (R014 to R019) were delivered to Nōgata depot between January and May 1996. These differ from the Minami-Fukuoka sets in having black cab ends. The two-car sets were lengthened to three cars in October 2001 with the addition of 8th-batch SaHa 813-500 centre trailer cars. These cars have longitudinal seating.

    The Minami-Fukuoka-based sets are normally used interchangeably with the 813-0 series sets, and the Nōgata-based sets are normally used on the Fukuhoku Yutaka Line.

    One set, R228, was transferred to Nōgata depot in October 2001, coinciding with the electrification of the Fukuhoku Yutaka Line. This set was repainted with black ends, and is used interchangeably with the Nōgata-based 813-100 series sets.

These new sets feature LED destination indicators, with a redesigned front end. The new 13th-batch sets were configured for wanman driver only operation while the earlier 12th-batch sets were modified for driver only operation between June 2009 and February 2010.

    Sets R1105 and R1106 were temporarily renumbered R2105 and R2106 to distinguish them from other sets in the fleet modified for driver only operation, and were returned to their original numbers in 2010 following conversion.
