The Nankai Main Line (南海本線 Nankai Honsen?) is the railroad route of Nankai Electric Railway connecting Osaka, Sakai, Kishiwada, Izumisano, Misaki, and Wakayama.

Lines connected to the Nankai Main Lane (the Kōya Line and the Airport Line are excluded) are named generically "the Nankai Line (南海線 Nankai Sen?)". The line is informed with the mark of the wave and the line color is blue.
