Umeda Station is a station of Hanshin Electric Railway, Hankyu Corporation, Osaka-shi Traffic Bureau (Osaka municipal subway) in Kita-ku, Osaka-shi, Osaka. I form a terminal of Kita, Umeda with Osaka Station and Kita-Shinchi Station of West Japan Railway Co.
(West Japan Railway), Higashi-Umeda Station, Nishi-Umeda Station of the Osaka municipal subway.
Umeda Station of each railway company and Osaka Station, Kita-Shinchi Station, Higashi-Umeda Station, Nishi-Umeda Station are independent stations having separate station buildings each in the remote place,
but I transfer mutually through underground shopping centers and am possible. Once Umeda Station (under an alias:) of the Japanese freight railroad (JR freight) I was established on Umeda freight station, the Umeda goods line that Umeda signal box)
went along the neighborhood of the present.
When each Umeda Station assumed Osaka Station the center, Umeda Station of Hanshin was located to Umeda Station of the subway, the south northeast to Umeda Station of Hankyu, the east and Umeda Station of the JR freight existed northwest.
In addition, Kita-Shinchi Station is to Nishi-Umeda Station, the south of Hanshin Umeda Station to Higashi-Umeda Station, the west of Hanshin Umeda Station to the east of subway Umeda Station.
I stand in a row with "Osaka" and may call out time to emphasize that it is the terminal station of the Osaka side in Hanshin and Hankyu. When "the next was Umeda, Osaka, Umeda, a terminal ,"
the announcement of Hanshin in the car became, and the destination guidance of the train was listed like "Osaka ⇔ Kyoto" in Hankyu until the 1980s when I used a destination indication board and has called it once with "Osaka Umeda Station".
This is seen at Temmabashi Station that is the terminal station of other companies, and there is the example including "Osaka" for an official station name among them like Osaka-Abenobashi Station and Osaka-Uehommachi Station.
These originate in that the terminal station was not established near Kitahama and Honcho that are a center in then Osaka-shi for the route laying period of each prewar private railroad. I pressured the then and opposite to the entry of to the city center private railroad
lines very much Ministry of Railways to work on a route license strongly in those days because Osaka-shi planned the route expansion of the subway network, construction including a streetcar not to let you admit (the municipal Monroe Doctrine).
Therefore, the head of each current private railroad line terminal station name came to be accompanied by "Osaka" because the terminal station was established only in the then city perimeter.
It can be called a kind of irony afterwards that a subway of Osaka-shi Traffic Bureau is to link each terminal to the present.
I may call it "Hanshin Umeda Station" "Hankyu Umeda Station" in a meaning to distribute every together with a company or position. Similarly, do it; and with Hanshin and the station name that are the same in Hankyu Kobe Sannomiya Station,
Kasuganomichi Station, Mikage Station "are often guided with Hanshin ○○"" Hankyu ○○"", too.
This is because Hankyu Corporation, Hanshin Electric Railway, three companies of Sanyo Electric Railway run each others' line through Kobe Rapid Transit Railway.
Because the train which assumes Kosoku-Kobe Station and to the west the first train departs from the same home, this is because it is especially emphasized and was announced.
In conjunction with this, it is displayed by the destination indication of the 5000 system vehicle of Sanyo Electric Railway with "Hanshin Umeda" not "Umeda". In addition, the destination indication of "Umeda" "Hanshin Umeda"
both enters the direct vehicle of Hanshin for limited express. The announcement of the Sanyo train in the car "is Hanshin, Umeda, Osaka line"…である (I merely call it "Hanshin Umeda" without attaching "Osaka" by the station yard announcement).
Though, by the announcement at the time of the arrival to Amagasaki Station of a train communicating Kintetsunara Line directly from Hanshin Namba Line, Osaka-Namba Station is; "the which comes to the Osaka area"…I may omit Umeda. In addition,
while, by the guidance by the automatic broadcast of the stop of the high speed express in Mukogawa Station and to the west, both Osaka-Namba Station and Osaka-Uehommachi Station omit Osaka;
"the which comes to Noda, the Umeda, Osaka terminal"…I attach Osaka to the head by all means in Umeda.
In addition, in the old line concourse of Shin-Osaka Station "is a 15.16 turn platform to Osaka Station" (Umeda)…There is notice.
