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.

  • Go round and round mountain, finally arrived. Was evening, but did not know of other tourists. Taste is a very relaxing place. From 0/1903 had commenced and documented. I feel that Japan culture where nothing should be.

  • Times visited by chance came soon train was lucky. Visit from people who want to see the train be sure check out the transit time. Get on the train, (even got a ticket) and photographed could at home. Free parking close by. I buy the Ekiben, ate in a park right next to the Pavilion. It was a delicious lunch using local ingredients to taste. Not many people had the day off, but, could enjoy. In the small parentsmeet family is recommended.
