The city of Osaka has a population of almost 3 million inhabitants. It is the centre of a metropolitan region with some 18 million people, including the cities of Kyoto and Kobe.
Osaka opened its first subway line (the first public metro in Japan) on 20 May 1933 between Umeda and Shinsaibashi. Most lines run along main streets and were built by the cut-and-cover method at low depth. In 2007, the eight subway lines reached a total length of 130 km with 123 stations.

Apart from the subway lines, which cross the city like a grid network, and the so-called new tram serving the waterfront, there are several suburban rail services operating in the metropolitan area, among them the Osaka Loop Line (21.7 km), which connects all subway lines, and the two Hankai tramway lines. As is common with other Japanese metro systems, some lines have a reciprocal service with suburban rail lines. In 2004, station numbers were added. Although no line numbers are used, lines are generally listed in the following order:
Esaka – Nakamozu
24.5 km, 20 stations, 9-car trains, on the surface north of Nishinakajima (includes Yodo river crossing)
20 May 1933 Umeda – Shinsaibashi
Dainichi – Yaominani
28.1 km, 26 stations, 6-car-trains

11.4 km, 11 stations, 5-car trains
