LinesEdit

Kudanshita Station is served by the following three subway lines.

Station layoutEdit

The underground station is built on three main levels, with the Tōzai Line platforms located on the 2nd basement level and the Shinjuku Line and Hanzōmon Line platforms on the 4th basement level.

PlatformsEdit

The Tōzai Line platforms consist of two side platforms running approximately north-south. The Shinjuku Line and Hanzōmon Line platforms on the 4th basement level were originally configured as two sets of side platforms running approximately east-west parallel to each other. From 16 March 2013, the separating wall between these platforms was removed, allowing cross-platform interchange between platform 4 (Hanzomon Line Oshiage-bound) and platform 5 (Shinjuku Line Shinjuku-bound).[1]

Work commenced on removing the separating wall between the parallel Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line and Toei Shinjuku Line platforms (4 and 5) in 2012, allowing cross-platform interchange from 16 March 2013.[1]
