Service outline

Although technically different lines, the Himi Line and the Jōhana Line are sometimes advertised as a single entity. Both start from Takaoka Station and share train sets with local livery.

History

The line opened on 29 December 1900 between Takaoka and Fushiki, operated by the Chuetsu Railway. It was extended to Himi on 19 September 1912. The company was nationalised on 1 September 1920. With the privatization of JNR on 1 April 1987, the Himi Line was transferred to the ownership and control of JR West.
