Shin-Yatsushiro Station

Shin-Yatsushiro Station (新八代駅, Shin-Yatsushiro eki?) is a JR Kyushu railway station located in Yatsushiro, Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan.

The station opened on March 13, 2004, to coincide with the opening of a section of the Kyushu Shinkansen high speed railway line. The Kyushu Shinkansen Tsubame is currently operational from Shin-Yatushiro to Kagoshima-Chuo station in Kagoshima; it will eventually extend north to Hakata station in Fukuoka and join with the Sanyo Shinkansen line.

Shin-Yatsushiro also serves regular JR Kagoshima Line trains. A special elevated spur runs from north of the station to the Shinkansen platform. Currently, this spur is used only by Relay Tsubame limited express trains from Hakata, and is designed to facilitate an easy and fast connection between the Relay Tsubame train and the Tsubame shinkansen train on the same platform.

Famous quotes containing the word station:

    How soon country people forget. When they fall in love with a city it is forever, and it is like forever. As though there never was a time when they didn’t love it. The minute they arrive at the train station or get off the ferry and glimpse the wide streets and the wasteful lamps lighting them, they know they are born for it. There, in a city, they are not so much new as themselves: their stronger, riskier selves.
    Toni Morrison (b. 1931)
