JR Dosan Line – Tsubojiri Station

It is the railway station on the border of a mountain hill across Tokushima and Kagawa prefectures. This station stands in such a remote place and there is not even a house found around here in this vicinity. So, it is often introduced as “the railway station in nowhere” in TV programs, cartoons and so on. Many railway maniacs from all over the Japan visit this station. This aboveground station has just a single platform and operates a single track system. The train approaches the yard by way of the switchback system. Due to the station being in the pocket of the valley, you can’t get the access to the station by car. The only way is via two mountain paths.
