The Toei-Oedo Subway Line in Tokyo opened in 2000 and is the second-longest linear motor subway line after the Nagahori Tsurumi-ryokuchi Line in Osaka.
The Toei-Oedo is also one of the most expensive metro lines ever built in Japan and was 10 years in construction. The 40km line loops from Tocho-mae in Shinjuku with an extension from Tocho-mae to Hikarigaoka.
Important stations for connections to other lines include Ueno-Okachimachi, Iidabashi, Daimon, Shinjuku, and Nerima.
