Arita Station
A charming train station in a traditional pottery town
I was traveling by train to Imari, and Arita station was part of my itinerary, where I had to change to a local train to finally reach Imari. I had to wait some time for the next train and I thought it was going to be boring. However, it was not! Arita is a beautiful station located in a small town in Saga Prefecture, Kyushu, popular in Japan for its pottery known as Arita-Yaki. This station is quite cozy; I loved the nice and comfortable wooden benches in the waiting room. There are also few shops where you can buy some food or porcelain souvenirs from Arita. However, what caught my attention the most was the architecture of this station. It has an awesome and very impressive dome, which makes this small building a special place.
