Visiting this old station feels like going back in time. You can still see the schedules, mannequins wearing the original uniform, the railtracks and the train. The best part is it is free and near the other tourist spots.

Who doesn’t love looking at old buildings, trying to understand and reminiscing the old days. The traditional design of japanese building can be seen and I was super excited when I saw it. It is very near to the Izumo Shrine (as it was a former stop to the shrine itself) and even the little shops that we passed through (the road that connects it to the shrine) was engaging tbh.

This is an old train station, seemingly a wooden structure and very beautiful. Now it is not functioning any more, and that’s why we have the privilege to walk on the railroad track and get inside an old train to take photos in whatever way we want. Very special experience!

This is a charming station. Such a shame they closed it. It matched Izumo far more than the current one. The station building itself is well kept and stunning. Wood smell good. Surprised there’s no souvenir shop here. Perhaps becoz not much visitors.
