Shin-Ōsaka Station

Shin-Ōsaka Station

Shin-Osaka Station (新大阪駅 Shin-Ōsaka-eki, literally New Osaka Station) is a railway station in Yodogawa-ku, Osaka, Japan. It is the western terminus of the high-speed Tokaido Shinkansen line from Tokyo, and the eastern terminus of the Sanyo Shinkansen. The lines are physically joined, and many trains offer through service.

Shin-Osaka is about 3 km from the older Osaka Station. The new station was built in 1964 to avoid the engineering difficulties of running Shinkansen lines into the center of the city. The JR Kyoto Line and subway Midōsuji Line provide convenient connections to other stations around the city center.

Station layout

The JR station consists of four island platforms serving eight tracks for JR West Lines at ground level, with two side platforms and three island platforms serving eight Shinkansen tracks operated by JR Central located on the fourth level, over the platforms and tracks for the JR West Lines in the east. There was a space on the east side of former Track 18 from the opening of the station, where another platform serving current Tracks 17 and 18 is located, and the existing services will be shifted eastward one platform at a time (and renovations performed on each newly vacated platform), with the westernmost platform to be used by services on the Osaka Higashi Line, scheduled to commence by the end of fiscal 2018. On the north side of the station, an additional Shinkansen platform serving Track 27 was located on March 16, 2013. (This northern area was originally reserved for a connection from Awaji Station and Jūsō Station by Hankyu Railway, but these plans were later cancelled and the space unused.)
