Tsurumaki-Onsen Station (鶴巻温泉駅? Tsurumaki-Onsen-eki) is a railway station on the Odakyu Electric Railway’s Odakyu Odawara Line in the city of Hadano, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The station is 55.9 rail kilometers from the line’s terminal at Shinjuku Station.
Tsurumaki-Onsen Station was opened on April 1, 1927, on the Odakyu Odawara Line of the Odakyu Electric Railway with normal and 6-car limited express services as Tsurumaki Station (鶴巻駅? Tsurumaki-eki). It was given its present name on March 15, 1937, but reverted to its original name in 1944 as wartime authorities felt that the onsen in the name appeared frivolous in light of wartime austerities. The current name was restored only in 1987. A Hadano-city-owned public onsen called Kobo-no-Sato-yu is only two minutes from the north exit (across the road, turn left, then right at the next corner).
Tsurumaki-Onsen Station has two opposed side platforms with two tracks, connected to the station building by an overpass. The station building is a one story wooden structure. Outside the station is a stone monument commemorating the 40th anniversary of the completion of the Odakyu Odawara line.
