The last train on weekdays is
On the Odawara Line, if you go from Shinjuku to Odawara, the current 11:42 p.m. will be about 20 minutes faster.
If you go from Shinjuku to Karakida on the Asahitama Line, the current 0:38 a.m. will be about 20 minutes early.
On the Zhejiang island line, if you go from Katase Enoshima to Seijo Gakuen, the current 11:53 p.m. will be about 20 minutes earlier.

On railways in the Tokyo metropolitan area, JR East will raise the time of the last train for up to 37 minutes on 17 routes next spring, and private railway companies are also considering going up.
