Ōsaka Uehommachi Station (大阪上本町駅 Ōsaka Uehonmachi-eki?) is a railway station on the Kintetsu Osaka Line and the Namba Line located in Uehommachi Rokuchome, Tennoji-ku, Osaka, Japan. This is why the station is also called "Ueroku Station" (上六駅). Now "Uehommachi Rokuchome" is used as bus stops. Trains of the Nara Line arrive at an underground platform and depart there. The station connects to Tanimachi Kyuchome Station on the Tanimachi Line (T25) and the Sennichimae Line (S18) of Osaka Municipal Subway. It is the terminal of Kintetsu since the Nara Line was opened in 1914.

The station was renamed from Uehommachi Station (上本町駅?) on March 20, 2009, the day the Hanshin Railway Hanshin Namba Line was opened.[2]
