Narita Station

The Narita Line (成田線 Narita-sen ?) is a name used by three railway lines located in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. The main line runs between Sakura Station and Matsugishi Station, and is sometimes referred to as the Samatsu Line (佐松線 Samatsu-sen ?). A branch line from Abiko Station to Narita Station is often called the Abiko Line (我孫子線 Abiko-sen ?), and a second branch, known as the Airport Line (空港線 Kūkō-sen ?) runs from Narita to Narita Airport Station. The first two lines are owned and operated by the East Japan Railway Company (JR East); the Airport Line is owned by a separate company, Narita Airport Rapid Railway, which allows JR and Keisei Railway to use the line for their passenger services.
