JR Japan Southernmost station Nishi-Oyama Station (tour on September 25, 2017)

JR Japan Southernmost station Nishi-Oyama Station (tour on September 25, 2017)

We had an outdoor bath in the morning and checked out the hotel to eat breakfast.

Today, I went to Nishi-Oyama station, the southernmost station Japan JR.
I go to take a picture of Kaimon-dake from there.

Because I wanted to go here before,
It is not an exaggeration to say that I took part in this tour.

I’m looking forward.

We arrived at the station in 15 minutes from Ibusuki Phoenix Hotel.

Address: 602 Yamakawa Oyama, Ibusuki City, Kagoshima
Opened in 1960 (Showa 35)

It was the southernmost station Japan long since its opening.
In conjunction with the opening of the Okinawa City Monorail line in 2003,
I gave the position to Akamine station of the same line.

At that time, the-Hyochu of the southernmost station was renewed to the southernmost station in the mainland,
Okinawa is not the mainland, because the opinion was received,
In 2004, the notation was changed to the southernmost station of JR Japan.

As a railway station in existence, based on the Railway Business Act,
Although it is the southernmost Japan as before, following the monorail in Okinawa prefecture as of 2017,
The possibility of constructing a new line as a normal railroad or is considered,
In 2016, President Aoyagi of JR Kyushu to mention the possibility of abolition between Yamakawa-Makurazaki, etc.,
The future has been attracting attention.

Free parking found on the side.

Osmanthus trees didn’t seem to wither.

Not a happy yellow handkerchief
It is a yellow post to deliver happiness.

I saw the yellow post for the first time.

The view of the interior is Kaimon-dake.

This mountain is cool.
