At the beginning of the opening, passenger transportation is operated only for a few round trips a day between Shimbashi Station-Shinagawa Station-Shibuya Station-Shinjuku Station-Itabashi Station-Akabane Station.[8]After that, Tokyo Yamatepopulation増に伴い上野駅を起点として池袋駅、新宿駅、渋谷駅、品川駅、新橋駅を経て東京駅方面に至る環状運転が開始され[2]After that, due to the opening of the Ueno station-Tokyo stationKeihin LineAt the same time as the time when mutual direct operation of the Tohoku Main Line was started, it shifted to the current operation mode and became established.

In addition to daily life such as commuting to work, going to school, and shopping, it is often used for sightseeing purposes, including foreigners visiting Japan. JR East is also focusing on developing users for tourism, and established the Yamanote Line project team in 2017.The Yamanote Line is called the "Tokyo Impressive Line", and since 2018, we have been distributing a free magazine "TOKYO MOVING ROUND" that introduces the culture and stores along the line.[14][15].

How to read the route name

How to read the Yamanote line is an antonymYamanoteとDowntownfrom"Yamano TesenI read it as "Yamanotesen" even before the Pacific War.The notation on the application form at the time of opening is "Yamanote LineThe notation at the time of opening was "Yamanote Line", but the reading was "Yamanotesen".However, immediately after the end of the warAllied Supreme Commander General Command For railway facilities, road signs, etc. according to the instructions of (GHQ / SCAP)RomajiWhen the writing was advanced, the Yamanote Line was followed by "Yamate," which was a popular name within the Japanese National Railways Department.YAMATE = Loop = LineAfter waving the romaji, "YamatensenThe reading "" has become established in general.[16].

There are two reasons why the reading has returned to "Yamanotesen". One started in 2Discover JapanThis is because there was a movement in the campaign to make the station names and line names easier to understand.The other is in Gunma prefectureAzuma Line(I'm sorry) has opened.To prevent the Agatsuma Line from being read as "Azunai"[Source required]On the Japanese National Railways, the name of all linesPhoneticDecided to put on.The Yamanote line has a furigana called "Yamanotesen", and the Agatsuma lineOmae StationOpened up to1971May 3Conducted from[17]..The reason why the Japanese National Railways authorities chose "Yamanotesen" and revived it is that "Yamanotesen" is traditionally correct because of the origin and origin of the line name.[18],Negishi Line OfYamate StationThis is to avoid confusion with (Yamate-eki, which opened in May 1964).Along with this, it will be posted on the train to ensure its purpose.CurtainDestination display is漢字The notation is "Yamate" to "Yamate Line", and the Roman alphabet is "YAMATE" to "YAMATE".YAMANOTE LINEI changed it to[16].


Originally the Yamanote LineJapan RailwayIs the currentTohoku Main LineandTokaido Main LineTo contactShinagawa Station - Akabane StationAmongYamanoteIt was a railroad track laid in.With the expansion of the city of Tokyo, it changed its character to the main transportation route of the big cities around the city.Electric trainStarted operation in 1909[19]It was in 1925 that the circular operation was carried out as it is now.[2].

This line, called the Nippon Railway Shinagawa Line, was located in Shinagawa, where the port was located.YokohamaIt was a line planned as part of the Dai XNUMX Ku line of the Japan Railway that connects the direction and the north side of Tokyo.[20]..However, it was technically and financially difficult to lay a railroad track on the undulating land of Yamanote, so we gave priority to the opening of the Dai XNUMX Ku Line of the Japan Railway.1883(Meiji16 years)May 7ToEdoDowntownCurrent in the northern part ofUeno StationOpened from the land of[21], Then1885(18th year of Meiji)May 3, According to the original plan, with the Japan Railway Dai XNUMX Ku LinePublic railway(CurrentTokaido Main Line) Between Shinagawa Station and Akabane Station (currently between Shinagawa Station on the Yamanote Line and Ikebukuro Station)Akabane LineBetween Ikebukuro Station and Akabane Station) has opened.At that time, the southern end of the Japanese railway was Ueno station, and the northern end of the public railway wasShimbashi StationSo, if you connect these two stations, the construction distance was short, but it was difficult to lay a railroad because the land between the two stations hits the downtown area of ​​Edo.[8]..On the other hand, although it takes a detour through Yamanote, the resident population of Yamanote at that time was small and it was easy to gain an understanding of railway construction, so this route was chosen.[19]..After opening1886(19th year of Meiji)May 7At that time, there were four daily direct passenger trains running between Shimbashi Station-Shinagawa Station-Akabane Station.[22].1891(24th year of Meiji)May 9From the XNUMXst ward line to the XNUMXth ward line of the Nippon Railway, all the way to Yokohama, Shimbashi, Shinagawa, Ueno,Takasaki-Utsunomiya-Fukushima-Sendai-Morioka-AomoriThe direction was connected by a railroad[22][23][24].

On the other hand, the same Japanese railway line, Tsuchiura Line (renamed to Coastline in 1901, nowJoban Line) And the construction of a connecting line in the direction of Shinagawa / Yokohama was also planned.Tsuchiura Station - Minamisenju Station - Tabata StationThe Nippon Railway Tsuchiura Line that connects the lines1896(29th year of Meiji)May 12, Opened Tabata Station on the Dai XNUMX Ku Line of the Nippon Railway, and at the same time opened it, directly connecting the Tsuchiura and Mito areas to the north side of Tokyo.[25]..Connecting this coastline and the Yamanote lineShort circuit wire(Yamanote Line Branch Line, originally called Toshima Line)1903(36th year of Meiji)May 4On the Nippon Railway Shinagawa LineIkebukuro StationOpened[26]At the same time, the business started with the opening of the railroad track connecting Tabata Station and Ikebukuro Station.[22][24]..Initially, when constructing this short-circuit line,Mejiro StationThere was also a plan to use the station as a branch point, but it was difficult to secure sufficient land around the station, so the current Ikebukuro station was opened and became a branch point.Komagome Station - Sugamo StationIt is said that the railroad tracks facing southwest are a remnant of the fact that Mejiro Station was the turning point at the beginning.This short-circuit line was originally called the Toshima line,[9], Prior to opening1901(34th year of Meiji)May 11, Japan RailwayMinister of CommunicationsUnder the approval of, the name of the ward line in the articles of incorporation was changed and the Shinagawa line and the Toshima line (the unfinished line at that time) were combined into the Yamanote line.[27].

After opening, TohokuShin-Etsu・ Not only Joban Linecenter laneAlso plays the role of connecting the Tokaido Line andRusso-Japanese WarDue to the outbreak of freight, the volume of freight transportation increased significantly, starting between Shinjuku Station and Ikebukuro Station in 1904 until 1910.Double trackWas made[20]..At this time, the section between Ikebukuro Station and Akabane Station was left behind due to double tracking, strengthening the character of a branch line.[2].

Japanese railway was nationalized1906(39th year of Meiji)May 11[20]At the time, between Shinagawa Station and Akabane Stationfreight trainIn addition, a passenger train that makes a simple round trip to this section was also operated (9 round trips daily).1909(42th year of Meiji)May 10When the line name is given to each railway line, the section of the Tohoku line is combined with the current Yamanote line section (between Shinagawa station-Ikebukuro station-Tabata station) including the section between Ikebukuro station and Akabane station. Yamanote LineBecame[24][28]..At that time, the north side of Ikebukuro Station was the Yamanote Line main line to Akabane Station via the current Akabane Line, and the former Toshima Line section was a branch line of the Yamanote Line.[29].. Then the same yearMay 12From Kasumori Station (currently Shimbashi Station) --Shinjuku Station --Ueno StationElectrificationAnd the "C" -shaped operation of the train was started[20]..At this time, the Keihin Line (currently) between Shinagawa Station and Kasumori StationKeihin Tohoku Line) Was taken.The Tokaido Main Line extends to Tokyo Station and opens.center laneWhen it is extended to the same station, it connects the Chuo Line and the Yamanote Line,Nakano Station --Shinjuku Station --Tokyo Station --Shinjuku Station --Shinjuku Station --Ikebukuro Station --Tabata Station --Ueno Station The "no" -shaped operation started, and from this time on, the current Akabane Line section became the Yamanote Line branch line. became.1923 OfGreat Kanto EarthquakeIt was temporarily suspended at1924May 4This form continued until.1925(Taisho14) On November 11st, on the Tohoku LineAkihabara Station - Kanda StationWhen the section was completed and the section between Tokyo and Ueno was double-tracked with an elevated track, access to the central line was stopped and circular operation was started.At this time, the Keihin Line is also extended to Tabata.[2].

The timetable at the start of the circular operation is basically operated at 5 trains per hour (every 12 minutes), the time required for one lap is 72 minutes, and the time required between Ikebukuro Station and Akabane Station (current Akabane Line) is 10 minutes. there were.In addition, a special train was operated during commuting hours, and a Keihin Line train was also operated between Tabata Station and Tamachi Station.[30].

After the war, the number of trains on both the Yamanote Line and Keihin Line increased due to the increase in transportation volume due to reconstruction.1956May 11The two lines (between Tabata Station and Tamachi Station: 11.7 km) that were shared by the company were separated, and the Yamanote Line, which operates in a circular manner on the inside, and the Keihin Tohoku Line (renamed when separated), which operates on a round trip outside, are now running. Ta[31].

1972(ShowaIn 47), the line name of the section between Akabane Station and Ikebukuro Station, which was originally the main line of the Yamanote Line, was changed to the Akabane Line.Since the Akabane Line has been operated as the main line of the Yamanote Line, at Ikebukuro Station, the Yamanote Line outer loop first train platform (currently Line 10) had arrived and departed until the new platform was set up (currently Lines 3 and 4) due to the formation of 8 cars. ..The line color was also used after the "Canary (yellow)" that was once used on the Yamanote line was changed to "Uguisu (yellowish green)" on the Yamanote line.1985(60)May 9, Akabane LineSaikyo LineMoved to the current form operated as part of[32].

The Yamanote Line is the main starting and ending point of the railway network that extends radially from the capital.Terminal stationAs a complete line in the metropolitan area connecting[43], Carry out frequent driving[44].

Because it runs on multiple lines (Yamanote Line, Tohoku Main Line, Tokaido Main Line) and the operation mode is a circular operation.Direction of operation TheGoing up-Going downnotOutside-Inner circleIs used for passenger guidance.Trains running on the left side of the double line on the loop line go around (clockwise: Shinagawa station → Shibuya station → Shinjuku station → Ikebukuro station → Ueno station → Tokyo station → Shinagawa station), and trains running on the left side of the double line turn inward (counterclockwise) Around)[45].

The number of trains is very large to meet the demand of passengers in the city center, and it operates every 2-3 minutes during the morning and evening rush hours and every 4 minutes during the daytime.However, the operation interval will be wider near the first and last trains (early morning and late night).Although it is a very frequent timetable[44], The number of weekday morningsChuo Line RapidLess than.is this,Shinjuku StationThis is because it takes time to get on and off at stations with many users, and the operation interval of the Yamanote Line cannot be shortened.Even at the Chuo Line rapid train, it takes time to get on and off at Shinjuku Station, but we will set up a platform with two lines on one side in each direction, and divide the preceding train and the following train into separate lines to get on and off.Mutual arrival and departureHowever, this is not possible on the Yamanote Line.

There is no train type setting on this line, and the stop pattern is constant for all trains.Parallel diamondIs assembled. The time required for one lap of 1 km is 34.5 minutes during the daytime (speed b) (excluding the stop time at the starting and ending stations).[6]..There is no train type setting on this line itself,Keihin Tohoku LineDuring the daytime hours when the train operates at high speed, the Yamanote Line is used to stop at each station in parallel sections.[46]..Between rapid stops, especiallyTabata Station - (I.e.Between the directions, Ueno Station- TokyoBetween directions,Akihabara Station - Hamamatsu TownWhen boarding each section between Tokyo Station and Hamamatsucho, it is faster to use the Keihin Tohoku Line rapid train, but due to the different driving intervals, it does not always arrive early even if you use the Keihin Tohoku Line.[Annotation 7]..Perform a similar circular operationOsaka Loop LineUnlike, there are no trains that change the type of train directly from other lines, or turn around at a station on the way and drive in the opposite direction.[47].

Once in operation, the train basically runs in the same direction all day long.The only trains that end at the station on the way are for Ikebukuro in the morning on weekdays and for Shinagawa and Osaki at night every day.In addition, the first trains departing from the station on the way are from Tamachi in the morning and from Ikebukuro in the afternoon on weekdays.[48].

For destination information at each station of the circular train, list the two nearest stations from the six main stations (Tokyo station, Ueno station, Ikebukuro station, Shinjuku station, Shibuya station, Shinagawa station) and go to "○○ ・ △△" (For example, the outer train at Yurakucho Station will guide you to Shinagawa / Shibuya).

Train numberIs a demarcation station on the diamondOsaki StationIs the standard.The outer loop is odd and the inner loop is even, with a "G" at the end as "when departing from Osaki Station (24 hours)" + "operation number on the day of the formation".Therefore, the train that goes around the Yamanote Line for about an hour will continue to operate at Osaki Station by changing the "departure from Osaki Station" part of the train number (excluding trains bound for Osaki).In addition, trains that depart from Osaki Station before 1 minutes on trains that depart from other stations will decrement "when departing from the first station (1 hours)" by -00.[49].

On weekdays, the Yamanote Line has 328 outer loops and 322 inner loops, for a total of 650 trains operating daily.On Saturdays and holidays, there will be 1 outer loops and 297 inner loops, for a total of 286. Due to the revision on March 583, 2007, the number of trains on the outside was increased by one during the morning rush on weekdays and one was reduced during the evening rush, and the total number of trains operated did not change, and there was no change on holidays, but four on the inside on weekdays. , Saturdays and holidays were reduced by five.Since this revision, 3 trains have been operated for 18 hour at intervals of 1 minutes and 1 seconds.Until the 4th, the day before the revision, there were 5 trains running every 2 minutes and 20 seconds.This is because the vehicle changed from 1 series to E25 series.Analog ATC Digital ATCThis is because it was possible to reduce 1 minute -1 minute 40 seconds.[50].

As an exceptional operation, on the day of refreshment work described later, during the time period when the line is shared with the Keihin Tohoku Line between Tabata Station and Tamachi Station, between Ikebukuro Station and Osaki Station in order to reduce the number of trains in this section. About 5 in 1 trains will be set up.For this reason, the operation interval between Osaki Station-Tamachi Station and Ikebukuro Station-Tabata Station will be slightly longer.[51]. Also,1956May 11The Yamanote Line and Keihin Tohoku Line were separated, and the number of trains operated on both lines was increased, but because the construction of the garage corresponding to the increased number of vehicles could not keep up, some trains were on the Keihin Tohoku Line.Kamata train wardAnd Shimojujo train ward (currentShimojujo driving ward) Needs to be detained, and board the Keihin Tohoku LineKamataGoing and goingHigashi JujoAfter driving as a way to go, I was warehousing.This train1967Shinagawa train ward (currentlyTokyo General Vehicle CenterEast area) was abolished due to completion[52].

It runs inward until 1 and outward after 2006.[53]。2016年10月の運行では、当時1本しかなかった最新鋭のE235系トウ01編成を使用。また2017年の運行で通算30回目を超え、2020年10月11日[Annotation 8]This is the 33rd service in total.Besides this, on the last Saturday of AugustTokyo General Vehicle CenterTogether with the public releaseView PlazaGroup trains may be operated that limit the number of applicants for tours planned by.This is also a temporary train that departs from Osaki Station, passes through all stations on the way, and returns to Osaki Station, as in the "Shinagawa Yumesanbashi" project.Besides this2005The "Yamanote Line 120th Anniversary" commemorative train that was operated in Japan was also non-stop on the way.[46].

From New Year's Eve to New Year's DayOvernight drivingIs operated every 10 minutes for the outer loop and every 12 minutes for the inner loop.At this time, at Harajuku stationMeiji JinguA temporary home for worshipers was used[54]..Currently, we are carrying out permanent construction to widen the temporary platform. It was put into service with the new station building on March 2020, 3, and Harajuku Station became an irregular relative type two-sided two-line platform system.[JR 5].

6-door car

Vehicles with 205 doors on one side were connected to the 10 series No. 231 car and the E7 series No. 10 and 6 cars.From the first train on weekdays to 10 am, the seats were stowed and could not be used due to congestion relief, but after 10 am, the seats could be used.However, as the congestion on the Yamanote Line has eased,2010May 2Since then, seat storage has been canceled and seats can be used all day long.In addition, it should be notedLater OfHome doorWith the installation of2011May 9By the time the 6-door car was completely replaced by the 4-door car[34]In addition, installation of platform door compatible equipment is planned.To replace this, 4 new 104-door companion cars have been built.This accompanying vehicle has a seat width of 1 mm, which is 10 mm wider than the existing vehicle, and has a dolly and air conditioning.VISEtc. use scrapped car supplies[60].
