Dobutsuen-mae Station, Osaka Reviews - Write a Review

  • Very nice employees, we had no idea how to work the subway ticket machine and the employee told us to just put money into the machine and the fare amounts will light up. Thank you!! 2 platforms. Escalators going up, no going down. A couple vending machines and lockers are available too. Limited seating on each platform, about 4 on each side.

  • It was the only subway station near my hostel. The man who works here is very rude. We were trying to buy tickets to go to Umeda station and the officer yelled at us and started getting mad at us. I guess it's because we didn't speak Japanese :( Just do not ever ask the officer to help you but the people. Except him, other people are generally nice.

  • It's a train station... It has trains...

  • 乗り換え方面が少しややこしいです。多目的トイレは良いです。堺筋線と御堂筋が交わり最強ですねー🎵私は良く利用します。天神橋筋六丁目駅から天王寺までは地下鉄がJRより100円近く高くなります。JRは環状線だけは安いからかもしれません。堺筋線は便が多いのと梅田や難波を通らないので、座れます。谷町線で天神橋筋六丁目駅から天王寺に行くことが直通で良いかもしれませんが、慣れたら動物園前駅で乗り換えて行く方が便利なことが多いです。天王寺の谷町線のホームが少し行きたい所から遠いこともあると思います。

  • スパワールドや天王寺動物園、新世界への最寄駅。地下鉄御堂筋線と堺筋線の駅となっていますが、阪堺電車の新今宮駅前とJR新今宮駅が容易に乗り換えることができ、南海線とも乗り換えることができます。地下鉄御堂筋線のホームは柱や壁に動物が描かれており、他の地下鉄の駅とは違った雰囲気の駅です。御堂筋線でなんばや梅田方面へ向かう場合はオススメなのは天王寺始発の中ほどの車両です。天王寺から乗車するお客様は梅田寄りの車両が便利で乗り降りしやすいため、中程の車両は空いている傾向にあります。
