Train otaku say this is the narrowest train station platform in Japan


Recommended Posts

The old island platform at Kasuganomichi on the Hanshin main line was also a narrow one.  It was decommissioned in 2004, replaced by platforms on each side.

These stations can be quite dangerous when express trains pass through.


Iwato station on the Meitetsu is pretty narrow...

And it has express trains passing at 120 km/h...

"Nakatsu would have a similar situation." No it wouldn't, there are passing tracks

AFAIK one of the platforms at Tobu Asakusa is also pretty narrow at its end, where the line curves out of the station.

Behind the camera there's a section where the station building support pillars occupy most of the width of the platform, see from about 16:30 here:



And another one just for fun:
