  1. JR Shikoku Tsubojiri Station

    Tsubojiri is a Shikoku Japan Railways station on the Dosan Line at Nishiyama, Ike-dachō in Miyoshi, Tokushima. Its station number is D19. It’s located close to the Ino-hana Pass on the boundary of Tokushima and Kagawa prefectures at a height of 272 m, with nothing but forest and rivers nearby. Even some local trains don’t stop here. It’s a really secluded station.

    The Roadside Station Ōboke is home to the Yōkai Mansion, a museum of stones, kiosks selling souvenirs of Miyoshi and natural stones, and a popular café serving Iya soba and fine tea from Ōboke.
    There’s also a Tourist Information Corner and kids’ space. Feel free to drop in for a rest.

  3. Village of Dolls

    This is one of the few regions of Japan where the old scenery still remains. It’s an area where visitors and residents experience true wellbeing.

  4. Wakimachi Submersible Bridge

    This bridge is just one or two metres above the water, and when the water rises, the bridge is submerged. It’s known as a place for watching the sunset, and the fishing boats going back and forth create a nostalgic scene.

  5. Yōkai Mansion

    This strange and fascinating museum of Yōkai or goblins explores the wide variety of goblins said to inhabit the region. The exhibits are both amusing and creepy.
