Doai Station Reviews
上越線群馬県よりの最北端に位置してます。 上りホームは地上階にありますが、下りホームは階段を470段下った真下にあります。 エレベーターも無いので、下りホームから地上にたどり着くまで少なくとも15分はかかると思った方が良いです。 more »It is located at the northernmost point of the Joetsu Line gunma prefecture. The uphill home is on the ground floor, but the downstairs is just below 470 steps. There is no elevator, so you should think that it will take at least 15 minutes to get to the ground from the downhill home.
よくテレビで見る駅です。暫くは、普通？に地上を歩くのですが、突然現れる階段。 階段の脇には地下水が流れているのですが、照明もありますし、怖い事はありません。階段が欠けていたりもしてますが、危険な事はなく、足腰が丈夫なうちに体験しましょう。駅ですが、入場料はありません。駅員さんはいませんし、乗車後、車掌さんに支払うみたいです。なんと！丁度、電車が来ました。トンネルなので、音が良く響きわかりました。 more »It is a station often seen on TV. For a while, normal? The stairs that suddenly appear though it walks on the ground. There is groundwater on the side of the stairs, but there is also lighting, and there is nothing to be afraid of. The stairs are missing, but there is no dangerous thing, let's experience it while the lower back is strong. It is a station, but there is no admission fee. There are no station staff members, and it seems to pay the conductor after the ride. What! Just came by train. Because it was a tunnel, I understood the sound sounded well.
映画でも使われた土合駅。 天まで階段が昇っているように見える。 土合駅は夏でも寒いので上着を持っていくのがベスト。 more »Tsuai station used in the movie. The stairs seem to rise to the heavens. Tsuai station is cold even in summer, so it is best to take a jacket.
