The next station to the north-east is Magome Station.

Nishi-magome is located directly north of the Magome train car repair facility which handles maintenance for rolling stock used on the Toei Asakusa Line and Oedo Line. Oedo Line trains access this facility by passing through the Asakusa Line using a connecting tunnel near Shimbashi Station (Shiodome Station on the Oedo Line).
