A record breaker
Check out this record-breaking train station…
So what record does it hold? Find out after the jump!
It’s not the smallest. It’s not the remotest. It’s certainly not the only one inside a volcanic crater.
Want a clue? This little station on the picturesque rail line through Kyushu’s famous Mt. Aso volcanic caldera is called 南阿蘇水の生まれる里白水高原 (or Minamiasomizunoumarerusatohakusuikougen).
And as such is the proud holder of the title 日本一長い駅名 – “Longest train station name in Japan”.
