The station is also known as Ueroku Station (上六駅, Ueroku-eki) since it is located in Uehommachi Rokuchōme (or Ueroku for short), which is currently used as the name of the connecting bus stops. The station was renamed from Uehommachi Station (上本町駅) on 20 March 2009, when it started being served by trains on the Hanshin Namba Line.[2]
