Shin-Osaka Station is at 5, Nishinakajima, Yodogawa-ku, Osaka-shi, Osaka,
It is a station of West Japan Railway Co. (West Japan Railway), Central Japan Railway Company (Central Japan Railway), Osaka-shi Traffic Bureau (Osaka municipal subway). The Osaka municipal management underground station number is M13.
It is a representative station of the extensive communication of the Shinkansen in Osaka.
It becomes the terminal of the Tokaido Shinkansen and the starting point of the Sanyo Shinkansen, and all trains which include our station in a business section stop and there are many trains which assume our station last arrival at the beginning and is set.
Umeda that is a north center of Osaka-shi is to the distance of approximately 3km to the south from our station and is 3 Station by subway Midosuji Line with the Tokaido main line (JR Kyoto Line) of the old line to 1 Station, subway Umeda Station to JR Osaka Station in there.
In addition, it connects to the Shinkansen, and the old line limited express train to Hokuriku and San-in, south period, the Kansai Airport area arrives and departs and carries one end in the North Kinki big X network.
Prior to the opening of business of the Tokaido Shinkansen of October 1, 1964, a station of Osaka municipal subway Midosuji Line started a business on September 24, the same year.
In the then station, only the southern half (Umeda side) of the current home added a wooden temporary construction home to the south side by the opening of business by the completion from a delay of the site purchase more and found the home head.
It is a trace at the time when there was the temporary construction home that the up and down line of the Umeda side greatly opens for one of a home or an applicant.
On February 24, 1970 when our station - Esaka Station interval extended and practiced medicine, unfinished home northern half was completed and removed a temporary home, and a station of current Midosuji Line was completed.
The station of Japanese National Railways (existing JR) was completed as terminal Station of the Tokaido Shinkansen built to the holding of the Tokyo Olympics of 1964 in October, 1963 and opened it on October 1, 1964 in the next year
(I refer to the Japanese National Railways time schedule revision on October 1, 1964).
As for a station of the Shinkansen not having been added to Osaka Station, Osaka Station (Umeda district) neighborhood is filled in the existing facilities such as Hankyu Umeda Station or the Umeda freight station,
and the thing that there was no room for the redevelopment and the extension to the Sanyo area are anticipated, and this is because it avoided the curve course that crosses the Yodo River like an old line (Tokaido Main Line) twice.
In addition, by "the bullet train plan that was a prewar Shinkansen plan ," Higashi-Yodogawa Station installed in next to the station at the present on April 1, 1940 was going to be renamed to "Shin-Osaka Station" after the route opening to traffic,
but our station was installed in the current position because it was changed a route of the Osaka neighborhood for the reason
"that there did not need to be trouble of the site purchase the which built it on the occasion of the extension to the Sanyo area partly by the direct top of the north goods line" when the Tokaido Shinkansen was built after the war.
I announced the abolition plan of Higashi-Yodogawa Station in form called the unification with our station, but will in this way continue by the demand of local people.
It depends on such a reason that the working kilometer between Higashi-Yodogawa Station and our station is very short with 0.7km.
Numerousness or east line runs in our station, and it is going to be with starting point Station of the line. A plan aimed at the opening of business at first in 2006, but I have trouble by the site purchase and will aim at the whole line opening at the start of construction, the end of 2018 in 2009.
