History[edit]

The station opened on 23 July 1932 as Takezawa Station.[4] It was renamed Tōbu-Takezawa Station on 1 July 1934 to differentiate it from Takezawa Station, which opened on the Japanese National Railways (now JR East) Hachikō Line in October 1934.[4][1]

From 17 March 2012, station numbering was introduced on the Tobu Tojo Line, with Tōbu-Takezawa Station becoming "TJ-34".[5]

In fiscal 2014, the station was used by an average of 791 passengers daily.[6]
