Tamagawa-Jōsui Station (玉川上水駅?, Tamagawa Jōsui-eki) is a railway station in Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan, operated by the private railway operator Seibu Railway, and a monorail station operated by the Tokyo Tama Intercity Monorail in Higashiyamato, Tokyo, Japan. The two stations are adjacent to, and at right angles to one another, with the border between the two cities passing in between the stations. The names of the stations are identical in Japanese, but are transliterated slightly different in romaji such that the Seibu Station is Tamagawa-Jōsui Station, whereas the Tokyo Tama Intercity Monorail is Tamagawajosui Station (i.e. without the hypen or diacritic mark).

Tamagawa-Jōsui Station is served by the Seibu Haijima Line, and is 7.2 kilometers from the terminus of that line at Kodaira Station. The monorail station is served by the Tama Toshi Monorail Line and is 1.5 kilometers from the terminus of the line at Kamikitadai Station
