JR West Website

JR West has suspended operations between Minami-Otari and Itoigawa stations on the Oito Line due to the impact of facility damage caused by the Noto Peninsula earthquake.

The company has stated that they will halt services throughout the day until at least the 7th, with no substitute transportation provided. For passengers who already possess a valid ticket for the Oito Line for the 4th and 5th, JR West is allowing travel via alternative routes from the Itoigawa area through the Hokuriku Shinkansen to Nagano Station and the Shinonoi Line towards the Matsumoto area. However, separate limited express tickets will be required for travel on these routes.

Normal operations are being conducted on the JR East segment of the Oito Line between Matsumoto and Minami-Otari stations.
