The line's original purpose was to transport Sanyō Shinkansen trains from Hakata station to the train depot in Kasuga. When the Kasuga area became more densly populated, JR decided to open a station in Hakata-minami (Hakata south). It's Shinkansen equipment in the trains, but it is not considered as a Shinkansen line.
