  • AYuzawa Sta.

    Yuzawa Sta.

    This over-track station has the concept of a warm station lit up in color that inherits a delicate and elegant history. The triangular roof design familiar as the symbol of the former station building has been inherited in the appearance designed in the image of the white walls of the many sake breweries found in Yuzawa.
