I like transportation architecture (airport, train stations, etc).
there's not many airports in comparison to train stations in Japan.
but what do you guys consider some train station architecture you seen?

for me i like:

Kyoto Station
Its building is huge, and nice. but what I like most is the inside, especially during christmas time



Takao Station


The outside is traditional architecture that I think looks really nice

inside you have giant tengu head


Kamakura station
outside is nice but inside is boring. i think its the natsukashii factor since I used to go here alot in college



Kamakura Koko-mae Station
This is probably one of the simplest stations but super unique. For me its another natsukashii station simply because I love Slam Dunk and Ryonan is based on Kamakura Koko. so I always see this area depicted in the story.
But i also run into many famous people here too, such as some of the AKB girls doing commercials



Kanazawa Station
I never been to kanazawa yet, but just looking at pictures, the station design looks very impressive

Kanazawa Station East Entrance is nice, but otherwise the station is unremarkable, and the train platforms are dismal- they are exactly the same as Sapporo Station- dark and lacking any welcome for visitors to the city.

I like Hyuga-Shi station on the Nippo Line in Kyushu:
I like the look of the interior. I'm going to Kyushu in a few days, maybe i'll stop by..

There is a second building on this tiny station and the train enters the station through a tiny sweet bridge:

Thats a picture from the past.


That one is even older (visit the side, there are other old pics):

But now I thing you will get the idea:

Its the last station of the line. Right behind the station is a parking slot for the train from where you „can jump into the water“. ^.^

I guess there are a number of stations are are architecturally impressive, but not unique (Tokyo Station, Osaka Station, etc...) and Hakata is one of them.

If the modernist architecture is allowed, then numerous stations can be considered including the new Scramble tower JR extension at Shibuya Station.

I also enjoy the architecture of Toei Oedo subway line (but not the user experience) as it manages to both be clean-modern but not cheap looking.
