Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kintetsu Shima Line is a railway line of the Japanese private railway company Kintetsu, connecting Toba Station and Kashikojima Station in Japan. The line connects with the Toba Line at Toba Station. The Yamada Line, Toba Line, and Shima Line form a single train line that begins at Ise-Nakagawa Station and serves the Ise-Shima tourist region. In the Meiji era, travelers coming to what is now Shima walked along a long-existing route that is now Mie Route 32, the Ise-Isobe road. As the Meiji era was near its end, in 1911, the government-owned Sang Line was extended from the city of Ujiyamada to Toba, therefore any plans for a railroad to Shima would assume Toba, not Ujiyamada, as the origin. As the Taish period began, many plans were put forth by various members of the railroad industry in the 1910s but none were implemented.
