The line, which is marked blue on subway maps, extends 20.4 km east to west from from Kami Otai (T01) in the north west of the city to Akaike (T20) in the east. The east - west line is a real work horse of the Nagoya metro as it funnels commuters and shoppers in to central Nagoya from the large dormitory towns of Inuyama to the north and Toyota to the east.
The line always seems to be packed, especially the last train to Toyota which usually holds a tribe of red-faced salarymen "fresh" from their evening's libations. The Tsurumai Line continues from Akaike in the east of Nagoya as the Meitetsu Toyota Line to Toyota city. From Kami Otai it continues as the Meitetsu Inuyama Line to Inuyama to the north.
Parts of the line first opened in 1977. The main interchange stations on the Tsurumai Line are Fushimi (for Nagoya Station), Marunouchi, Kamimaezu (for Sakae), Tsurumai (for JR Line connections to Chikusa, Ozone, Ena and Nakatsugawa on the Chuo Line), Gokiso (for the Marunouchi Line), and Yagoto (for the Meijo Line).
