Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Put Kareigawa Station and other Kirishima attractions into our Kirishima trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • En route from Kagoshima airport in Kirishima hot springs by chance, friends found karegawa River station billboards, saw a drop. Station building has seen it on TV, and that famous Ekiben. Whats the Ekiben feel nostalgia somewhere such as made by my grandma in the countryside, perched on a platform bench. It would be a moment just as the train, can not meet the railway mania. Heavy rain was falling, but it also lets you feel me.

  • I came to visit karegawa River station. It is integrated in the mountains of the old station building. Visited by many foreign residents. The coming wind of Hayato's tourist train comes and the clickety irresistible train buffs. For visitors who were equipped with parking and toilets. Today the stationmaster Nyan taro. Sorry!
