Accompanying the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen, the Iiyama Station for the conventional rail lines was relocated, and a new “Iiyama Station” was born.
With a universal design for everyone’s ease of use, Iiyama Station Tourist Information Center, the entrance for traveling around, also has a tourist information center, a rest area and waiting room, bathrooms, and a tea room (Panorama Terrace).
Within Iiyama Station are Shin-etsu Shizenkyo Activity Center, a convenience store, a soba restaurant, and a rent-a-car dealer, making the station highly convenient for travelers.
Also equipped with a transport hub with buses and taxis for tourists, parking lots, and rotaries, it also serves as an entrance to Shin-etsu Shizenkyo.
