The small train station is located in the center of the town. There are many souvenir shops and eating houses inside. Particularly there is a "kimono alley" by the side of the train tracks for viewing by tourists. Really a lovely place welcome by tourists.

I don’t normally review a train station, but as you leave the station on the left hand side near the exit you will see a hot food stand. TRY THE PORK DUMPLINGS ! Holy Christ are they good! And I’m not a dumpling person !

The station was visit at noon as it was the cherry blossom season. There are some shops selling food, snacks, etc, near the entrance to this station. There is also a information office here.

It is s small train station but well decorated with many different kimono stands which make it stand out. There are a few shops and we have our breakfast at Tully cafe.

This place is kind of a tourist trap. Things are more expensive and provides nothing interesting or worth buying. The fish/prawn or whatever fried cakes they offer is horrible. Don't buy.
