Kareigawa Station, Kirishima
(4.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It was a station like a movie set. It was purchased, are sold at the gate. It and the Kagoshima dialect is a vegetable in Tempura batter. Locals and travelers, and the taxi driver were bought.

  • Wooden railway station station and runs several in a day. I went by bus. Just trains coming in from Kagoshima airport in about 10 minutes and, with perfect timing. My favorite local trains and recently the station even unusual wooden. Yellow post in the station. Master cat work off and was sleeping. Depends on whether or not the train to wait for some time, if you come 5 minutes stops the home even while the train is free.
