Tsurumai Line Nagoya Subway 鶴舞線, 名古屋地下鉄
The Tsurumai Line of the Nagoya subway runs east-west from Kami Otai Station to Akaike Station with connections to Inuyama from Kami Otai and Toyota from Akaike.
The Tsurumai Line (鶴舞線) is one of the six main subway lines of the Nagoya subway system. It runs east to west from Kami Otai (T01) to Akaike (T20).

Parts of the Tsurumai Line first opened in 1977. The main interchange stations on the Tsurumai Line are Fushimi (for Nagoya Station), Marunouchi, Kamimaezu (for Sakae), Gokiso and Yagoto.
