Sakae Station (栄駅 Sakae-eki?) is an underground metro station located in Naka-ku, Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan operated by the Nagoya Municipal Subway.[3] It is an interchange station between the Higashiyama Line and the Meijō Line and is located 9.0 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Higashiyama Line at Takabata Station and 3.0 rail kilometers from the terminus of the Meijō Line at Kanayama Station. This station is located in part of the upper class district of Nagoya.


Sakae Station was opened on 15 November 1957 as Sakaemachi Station (栄町駅 Sakaemachi-eki?) as a terminal station on the No. 1 Line, later renamed the Higashiyama Line. The new subway system replaced the electric tram which had run above ground. The No. 2 Line (later named the Meijō Line) connected to the station on 15 October 1965. The station was renamed to its present name on 1 June 1966.[1]



Sakae Station has one underground island platform for use by the Higashiyama Line and two underground opposed side platforms for use by the Meijō Line.

2 Higashiyama Line For Nagoya and Takabata
3 Meijō Line For Kanayama, Aratama-bashi, and Nagoyakō
4 Meijō Line For Shiyakusho and Ōzone

Past the West Exit are exits 1, 2, 7, and 8. Exit 3 and Exit 6 are between the Central Exit and the West Exit. Past the East Exit are exits 4, 4A, and 5. [3]
