Shimonada station

Shimonada Station is one of the stations on the Yosan Line running on the sea side of Ehime Prefecture. Although it is a small station and there are no tourist facilities around, there is no end to the number of people who visit there.

Sea, Road, Station…
This station was once referred to as “the station closest to the sea in Japan.” At that time, waves were splashing and splashing just below the platform. It’s a countryside with nothing, but there are only a few stations in Japan that are so picturesque.

What a magnificent view…
The platform at the station offers a wide view of the Seto Inland Sea, and the platform with the background of the sea is very photogenic like a beautiful picture. In addition, you can see a wide variety of views here from the early in the morning to Sunset.

Is it the world of Spirited Away???
When you sit on the bench on the platform, the beautiful sea of Iyo-nada spreads out in front of you, and a pleasant breeze blows through. This is the scenery of the railroad that leads to the sea of a train running in the sea that appeared in the Ghibli animation “Spirited Away“.

The day time


Don’t miss the special trains…
On this Yosan line, a two-car train called “Iyonada Monogatari” is running. It consists of two vehicles that one is golden and the other is red, the color is different one by one. And it looks so fancy and awesome fits with the atmosphere of sunset.
