The Ōfunato Line (大船渡線 Ōfunato-sen ?) is a local rail line in Japan. Part of the East Japan Railway Company (JR East) system, it runs as a spur line from Ichinoseki Station in Ichinoseki, Iwate in central Japan to Sakari Station in Ōfunato, Iwate on the coast. It connects with the Kesennuma Line at Kesennuma Station in Kesennuma and the privately owned Sanriku Railway's Minami-Riasu Line at Sakari Station in Ōfunato.

Service

As of April 2005, there were 27 services daily using this line (14 east-bound, 13 west-bound). In all cases, Kesennuma was a stop on a run, but run endpoints varied. These were Ichinoseki-Sakari (8 east-bound, 7 west-bound, including 4 express, 2 each way), Ichinoseki-Kesennuma (4 east-bound, 4 west-bound including 2 express, 1 each way), and Kesennuma-Sakari (2 east-bound, 2 west-bound, no express).

Additional information

The nickname of this line is the "Dragon Rail", as the spur line is thought to resemble the thin tail of a Chinese dragon and as a statement of the speed of the train over the considerable distance. Express trains on this line are marked "Super Dragon".
