Seibu Shinjuku Station in Shinjuku, Tokyo serves only one private railway company, Seibu Railways. Seibu Shinjuku Station is the terminus of the Seibu Shinjuku Line to Hon Kawagoe Station in Kawagoe in Saitama Prefecture.

Trains

The Koedo Limited Express takes you to Hon Kawagoe Station and thus into close walking distance to the historic center of Kawagoe in a mere 46 minutes. Seat reservations are necessary for the Koedo Limited Express.

Regular express trains bound for Hon Kawagoe operate as express trains only up to Tanashi Station and then turn into local trains, stopping at every station.

Kodaira Station, where the Haijima Line branches off from the Seibu Shinjuku Line, is two stops before Tanashi Station.
