Torahime Station

Jump to: navigation, search

Torahime Station (虎姫駅) is a train station in Nagahama, Shiga Prefecture on the Hokuriku Main Line operated by West Japan Railway Company (JR West).

Torahime Station rebuilt its building in March 2006. Very nice woody building inside and out. There’s a commercial space where a bakery once operated, but they have since left and finding a suitable tenant has been a problem. Outside the station, there’s a statue of the Tiger Princess (which is what “Torahime” means) and the small Torahime Shrine (popular with fans of the Hanshin Tigers baseball team in Osaka).
