Imazatosuji Line

Osaka Subway: Imazatosuji Line 今里筋線

The Imazatosuji Line (color-coded bright orange) is a short north-south subway running approximately 12km between Itakano and Imazato in the east of Osaka.

The Imazatosuji Line has 11 stations built post-Bubble in identikit style to keep costs low. The Imazatosuji Line opened in 2006.

As with the Nagahori Tsurumi-ryokuchi Line, the trains are linear motor-driven.

The Imazatosuji Line is the only line of the Osaka subway not to have any connections with the Yotsubashi Line, Midosuji Line or the Sakaisuji Line. It is also located completely outside the Osaka Loop Line.
