Kareigawa Station, Kirishima

4.4
On the Hisatsu line, you'll find Kareigawa Station, one of the oldest wooden station buildings in the country, opened in 1903. Surrounded by tall and verdant forests, the small station feels like a relic from a bygone era, with benches and waiting rooms all composed of wood, as they were many years ago, and the interior furnished with early 20th-century pieces. Arriving by train, you'll get a five-minute stop to have a look around the station and take some pictures.

    JR Kyushu hisatsu line stations. 1/15/1903 started operations (114 years old in 2017). Station is a wooden structure since its inception, oldest in the prefecture as well as osumi Yokogawa station building. Station designated tangible cultural property. Express stops at the unmanned station. There are exhibits on the station. Small station rich lyricism stained with the long history of the mountain. Kagoshima airport staff.
