"Would you spend the night in Japan's deepest train station?

Doai Station is located in Gunma Prefecture, close to the hot spring town of Minakami. It is nestled deep inside the Shimizu Tunnel, which once the longest tunnel in Japan. When it was completed in 1931, it cut travel time between Tokyo and Niigata by four hours.

Passengers looking to board one of Doai’s trains must descend 70 meters (230 feet) from the entrance, making it the deepest train station in the country.
