Japan's deepest station, Doai Station is the entry way to Japan's Death Mountain. Sounds fitting, huh?
If you google it, there are a couple of blogs saying that it is spooky, but honestly I don't think so. Just a regular train station. Haha. Budget:
JPY2,410 (~USD22)Visit Date
When to Go
- August 1, 2021
- I visited this station when I did my Tanigawa hike.
Throughout the year.
- 486 steps! That's for the platform coming from Tokyo.
- This is an unmanned station. I came from Minakami Station and the conductor walked across the train cars so people using IC cards can tap theirs.
- Very few trains passing through here (six or so a day), so make sure you time it correctly. Otherwise, your itinerary will depend on how much time you want to spend taking pictures. On my end, I literally just passed through it on my wait to my hike.
|Exiting the station. Plenty of people taking pictures of the station. |
|Whoa. That's a LOT of stairs. |
|Better get started then. |
|That's the exit, right? |
|Oopsie. Not done. This time, really done!|
|Outside the station. |
|Looking back. Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the entire thing. |
