Lines

This station is served by the Hibiya Line, which runs across Tokyo between Naka-Meguro in the southwest, to Kita-Senju in the northeast. Additionally, the Hibiya Line operates through services to the Tobu Skytree Line to Tobu-Dobutsu-Koen or Minami-Kurihashi in the Saitama Prefecture.

The station connects to the nearby Toranomon Station on the Ginza Line, via a 7-minute walk in a connecting passageway.[1]

History

The station was planned to be provisionally opened in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics, and will be fully opened by fiscal 2022.[2]

By its opening in 6 June 2020, Toranomon Hills Station will implement its station number, H-06.[1] As a result, the station numbers for stations after Toranomon Hills (Kasumigaseki to Kita-Senju) will have to be adjusted.

Surrounding areas

The station is built directly under the Japan National Route 1 (Sakurada-dori section). It is west of the Toranomon Hills Mori Tower. At the two sides adjacent to the station will be two underground station plazas, which were built during the redevelopment for the Toranomon Hills.[1]

The station is located on the west side of the Toranomon Hills commercial and residential complex which opened in June 2014, and will provide connections with a new bus and Tokyo BRT terminal also planned ahead of the 2020 Olympics.[2]
