The platform of this train station boasts a gorgeous view of the Seto Inland Sea. The station has been featured numerous times in posters and it has also served as a shooting location for movies and TV dramas, attracting a large number of tourists from around Japan and abroad.
Located in Futamicho Kaminada, Iyo, this is the closest station(Date opened for service: June 9, 1935!) to the sea in all of Japan. It’s about one hour by train or car south from Ehime Prefecture’s capital city Matsuyama. Sitting on the station bench and looking out at the blue ocean stretching away in front of you can fill you with a real sense of peace and tranquil solitude.
