The Kintetsu Tawaramoto Line (近鉄田原本線 Kintetsu Tawaramoto sen?) is a railway line of the Japanese private railway company Kintetsu, connecting Shin-Ōji Station (Ōji, Nara Prefecture) and Nishi-Tawaramoto Station (Tawaramoto, Nara Prefecture) in Japan.

The line does not connect directly with other Kintetsu Lines, however both terminals are located within walking distance of nearby Kintetsu stations on other lines.
