Introducing the Chuo-Sobu Line, the closest line to TCJ Tokyo Central Japanese Language School!
Do you know the JR Chuo / Sobu Line, which is the closest line to TCJ Tokyo Central Japanese Language School?
By the way, the nearest station of TCJ is "Shinanomachi" on the JR Chuo / Sobu line!
Today, I would like to introduce you to the JR Chuo / Sobu Line!
What kind of line is the JR Chuo / Sobu Line?
The railway network in Tokyo is the most complicated in the world. In terms of Japan Railway (JR), there are Yamanote Line, Keihin Tohoku Line, Chuo Line, Sobu Line, etc., and in Tokyo Metro (Subway in the Tokyo area), there are Ginza Line, Marunouchi lines, Hibiya line, Tozai line, etc. In addition, there are more than 25 lines operated by private railway companies such as Odakyu Electric Railway and Seibu Railway.
Trains running on the Chuo- Sobu Line are displayed with a yellow body color and a yellow line on the train map. In recent years, the Chuo-Sobu Line is also called the JB Line so that it can be easily used by foreign travelers. There are 39 stations in total, from JB01 (Mitaka Station) on the west side of Tokyo to JB39 (Chiba Station) on the east side of Chiba Prefecture. If the Yamanote Line that goes around the center of Tokyo is called the heart of Tokyo, it is no exaggeration to say that the Chuo-Sobu Line is the aorta that connects the heart to the whole body.

Kichijoji Station is close to Inokashira Park, which is full of nature, and is very popular among young people. Kichijoji, where the station is located, has been ranked number one in the city rankings for living in Tokyo for several years in a row.

At Shinjuku Station, you can transfer to the Chuo-Sobu Line, Yamanote Line, Saikyo Line, and Marunouchi Line, so the station yard at Shinjuku Station, which is the center of Tokyo's transportation network, is like a huge maze. First-time users will definitely get lost in the station, but it could be an interesting adventure!
