LinesEdit

Takezawa Station is served by the unelectrified Hachiko Line between Komagawa and Takasaki, and is located 56.3 km from the starting point of the line at Hachiōji.[1]

Station layoutEdit

The station originally had two opposed side platforms serving two tracks, forming a passing loop on the single-track line, with the station building located on the south side and the platforms connected by a footbridge.[1] From 15 October 2016, the up (for Komagawa) platform was decommissioned and the track removed, with trains in both directions using the remaining (former down) platform.

From 15 October 2016, the up platform was decommissioned and the track removed, with trains in both directions using the remaining (former down) platform.
