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.

  • Opened in Meiji 36, the station building of the wooden construction building of the Hito Line, which is now an unmanned station, is full of retro feeling and nostalgic✨✨✨ feeling

  • From Kagoshima Airport, take a bus to get off at The First Chia-Ekawa and arrive at this station in 5 minutes. The station building is made of wood and seems to come out to the movie, and nostalgia is poured. The station valve was sold temporarily in the station building according to the train. From here, take the express "Way of The Yanote" to Yoshimatsu. This train is also a tourist express, you can enjoy luxury in the car.
