Tanjiro Kamado took an AR photo that fits the retro station building and tried to complete the 'Kimetsu no Yaiba' stamp rally

The digital stamp rally, which is a collaboration project between 'Kimetsu no Yaiba' and JR Kyushu, seems to be harsh, so I actually decided to

go around in a form other than speedrun while enjoying the train window and movement itself. I visited the stamp rally target stations in various parts of Kyushu in 3 days and 2 nights. On the final day of the trip, we will start from Kagoshima Chuo Station, go around Shijuku Station, Kirishima Jingu Station, and Miyakojo Station in South Kyushu, and aim for Mojiko Station, which is the goal.

◆ October 4, 2020 (Sun) 6:20: Kagoshima Chuo Station → Ibusuki Station
Start Kagoshima Chuo Station in the morning.

First, take the Ibusukimakurazaki Line to the target station, Ibusuki Station. Most of the trains on the Ibusukimakurazaki Line return to Kiire Station on the way, and the train that goes to Ibusuki Station runs at a pace of one every 30 minutes to an hour.

The route is like this, going south on Kinko Bay.

Approximately 20 minutes after departure, residential land spreads around the station to Sakanoue Station and Goino Station, but from there it becomes the face of a sightseeing line that runs along the coast at once. Sakurajima and the sunrise can be seen on the left side of the direction of travel.

Basically, Route 226 runs alongside the sea side of the railroad track.

At Satsuma-Imaizumi Station, 55 minutes from the departure, many students from Ibusuki Commercial High School got off, and the inside of the train was quite vacant. Also, when the exit of Kinko Bay is finally approaching and you come to Miyagahama Station, you will not be able to see Sakurajima.

The front of Miyagahama Station looks like a beach, but due to the bursting of the bubble economy, the maintenance plan was canceled and it is just a park.

From there, we arrived at Ibusuki station in about 15 minutes. I got a stamp of a rock pillar and a screaming 嶼 冥.

When you get off at the station, there is a poster in front of the ticket gate ...

Two posters were also posted in the waiting room, which was an AR photo spot.

Summon Mr. Scream in front of Ibusuki station.

Screaming 嶼 standing in the footbath.

In Ibusuki City, Eevee and its evolved manholes are set up with the pun 'Ibusuki → I like Eevee', so you can take pictures side by side with Mr. Screaming like this.

I had some time, so I also shot a movie.

I called the screaming 嶼 冥 at the 'Kimetsu no Yaiba' AR photo spot and made it stand in front of the rapid 'Nanohana' --YouTube

Return to Kagoshima Chuo Station by this rapid train 'Nanohana'.

As the sun rose, I could clearly see Sakurajima smoking over Kinko Bay.

◆ October 4, 2020 (Sun) 9:59: Kagoshima Chuo Station → Kirishima Jingu Station
At Kagoshima Chuo Station, the limited express 'Kirishima' that we are going to board and the limited express '

Ibusuki no Tamatebako ' that is heading toward Ibusuki just returned were lined up.

'Ibusuki no Tamatebako' is a limited express train operated by a dedicated vehicle, and features swivel chair seats facing the sea.

On the other hand, 'Kirishima' is a limited express that connects Kagoshima Chuo and Miyazaki in about 2 hours. The remaining target stations in South Kyushu are Kirishima Jingu Station and Miyakonojo Station, but there are regular trains from Kagoshima Chuo to Kokubu, which is one station before Kirishima Jingu, at a pace of 30 minutes to 1 hour. The number of regular trains that run from Kyushu to Miyakonojo is limited to 9 round trips a day, so this time we will run through the limited express at once.

The route to Kirishima Jingu Station looks like this.

After leaving Kagoshima Chuo, proceed northeast along Kinko Bay for a while. During this time, Route 10 runs side by side on the right side of the direction of travel, but the railroad tracks run almost along the sea, so you can enjoy Sakurajima all the way through the windows.

The positional relationship with the national highway looks like this.

Breakfast is finally here. Both cows and pork are delicious in Kagoshima, but this time I chose 'Thick sliced Kagoshima black pork bento'. Next to each other are Akashiya's Karukan, Karukan Manju, and Chiran Tea.

The rice is a little thin, but the thickness of the rice is almost the same as that of the black pork, as if it was turned to the thickness of the black pork.

Karukan manju contains red bean paste, and Karukan does not have red bean paste. It goes well with the deep Chiran tea.

30 minutes from the center of Kagoshima, you can see Sakurajima up to the front of Hayato Station, but from this point the Nippou Line leaves the coastline and heads north, so you can't see Sakurajima.

After passing Kokubu station, you will rush into the mountains at once. Next is Kirishima Jingu Station, which is the target station, but there are few trains between Kokubu Station and Nishi-Miyakonojo Station, so it seems to be one of the bottlenecks if you aim to capture with only a blunt train.

I went through a number of tunnels and went out to the flat land along the Kirishima River.

Arrive at Kirishima Jingu Station in 50 minutes from Kagoshima Chuo Station and 14 minutes from Kokubu Station.

I got the 11th stamp in total, Yoshiyuki Tomioka, a water column. The stop time was short and I couldn't afford to look for the poster.

◆ October 4, 2020 (Sun) 10:50: Kirishima Jingu Station → Miyakonojo Station
Do not get off the limited express 'Kirishima' and aim for the destination as it is.

It takes 20 minutes to drive in the mountains.

When you enter Miyakonojo City and become elevated, you will reach Nishi-Miyakonojo Station.

When you go down to the horizon again and you can see the containers etc ...

This is Miyakonojo Station, the third target station in Southern Kyushu.

Get the 12th stamp in total, the insect pillar and the butterfly Shinobu.

With this, 12 out of 13 have gathered, and the rest is only Mojiko Station.

◆ October 4, 2020 (Sun) 11:21: Miyakonojo Station → Mojiko Station
The last target station is Mojiko Station, which is the northeastern tip of Kyushu. If you do a normal route search from Miyakonojo, it will come out that it is faster to return to Kagoshima Chuo Station and take the Kyushu Shinkansen. I decided to move the Toyomoto Line north to Kokura.

From Miyakonojo Station, take the limited express 'Kirishima' that you boarded.

There is also a mountainous area between Miyakonojo City and Miyazaki City, and the train crosses the river again and crosses the mountain.

When you cross the long bridge over the Oyodo River ...

Arrived at Miyazaki station. 'Kirishima' on the left. On the right is 'Kirishima' heading toward Kagoshima.

At this point, transfer to the limited express 'Nichirin' bound for Oita. Since 'Nichirin' is in contact with 'Sonic' bound for Hakata in Oita, the destination was written as 'Oita (Hakata)'.

The destination display curtain of the train is also 'Nichirin (& Sonic)' and 'Oita (Hakata)'.

The route from Miyazaki station to Oita station looks like this.

A short time after leaving Miyazaki Station, you will see a huge building on the right side of the direction of travel. This is a hotel called Sheraton Grande Ocean Resort at Phoenix Seagaia Resort. It stands out because there are no such tall buildings in the area.

Since the railroad tracks basically run along the Hyuga-nada Sea, the estuary, which is so wide that you cannot tell whether it is the sea or the river, appears many times in the scenery.

Shortly after passing Tsuno Station, an endless overpass and solar panels lined up appear in the train window on the right hand side.

This is the 'Tono No. 1 Power Plant' that

Miyazaki Solarway Co., Ltd. has been operating since April 2010. This is a conversion of the test line of the former linear motor car to a mega solar power plant.

The number of elevated tracks increased to two on the way, but soon after that, they will join and return to one. There are no solar panels installed around here.

There are also places where tents are installed on the overpass.

The overpass, which runs side by side for a considerable distance, then crosses the Nippou Main Line and moves to the left hand side in the direction of travel, and ends immediately.

In Nobeoka City, you can see the huge Asahi Kasei factory in the car window on the left hand side. Asahi Kasei was founded in Nobeoka, and once used to fly charter flights from Miyazaki Airport to its own heliport. However, in 1990, a crash occurred that killed 10 passengers and crew. In response to this, the construction of the

Miyazaki Airport Line and the speeding up of the Nippou Main Line have been promoted.

A relatively flat section continued from Miyazaki to Nobeoka, but from Nobeoka you will enter the steep mountains on the prefectural border with Oita.

Along with Route 10, head back and forth between the left and right banks of the Kitagawa to the mountains.

A small village in the mountains.

Sotaro Station is known as an unexplored station that is difficult to reach by train.

We will aim for the destination while separating from the limited express bound for Miyazaki.

In Tsukumi, there was a civic stadium across the harbor.

Usuki is approaching the shipyard near the railroad tracks.

Then, I left Miyazaki and arrived in Oita at 15:42, taking 3 hours and 30 minutes. Six trains are stopped at Oita Station. From the left, the Kyudai Main Line bound for Shonai at 15:45, the Hohi Main Line bound for Oita, which seems to have arrived, the limited express 'Nichirin' that I just got on, and the limited express 'Sonic' Hakata that departs at 15:45 at the same platform. I went to the Nippou Main Line bound for Usuki at 15:43, and the limited express 'Sonic' bound for Hakata at 16:10.

The reason why there are many people around 'Sonic' departing at 16:10 is because it is a wrapping train.

The vehicles that are wrapping trains are the 885 series operated by 'White Kamome' and the 883 series operated by 'Sonic', but this time 'Sonic' was operated by 885 series, so Hakata It had the same appearance as the one taken at the station .

However, the difference is that this time we will travel on this train. The seat looks like this. The checkered seat cover has nothing to do with the 'Kimetsu no Yaiba' collaboration, and there is no wrapping inside the car.

However, the vehicle number inside the door is an AR photo spot similar to the poster ...

A wrapping train will appear when read with 'COCOAR2'.

The logo part on the outside of 885 series No. 6 car is also a marker. In addition, unlike the character marker, you can call the wrapping train by reading it even in a place other than the target station.

On the third day, I just sat down by train, but it's difficult to skip lunch and snacks as it is, so I bought 'Oita Toriten Nigiri Shou' at Oita Station.

With ponzu and mustard, it feels refreshing even if you eat fried toriten.

The weather was generally good during the trip, but on the third day, the clouds began to spread and became dark, and the impression that the train window beyond Oita was 'deep' continued. Under such circumstances, the 'Kimetsu no Yaiba' wrapping train seems to be quite eye-catching when it is stopped, and I saw many people shooting with smartphones and cameras.

It took 3 hours and 30 minutes to reach Oita, but it took 1 hour and 20 minutes from Oita to Kokura.

The last is a regular train, heading for Mojiko Station.

The last train has arrived. Only 15 minutes to Mojiko station.

Arrived at Mojiko Station in the dark.

Finally, I got the stamp of Tanjiro Kamado, the last one.


All points are cleared. A limited design SUGOCA will be presented to 1000 people by lottery from those who have collected all the stamps.

And there is a poster at the exit of the ticket gate ...

Photographed Kanjiro with Mojiko Station. Since the retro station building is used as it is at Mojiko, Sumijiro was a great match.

By traveling all over Kyushu, I was able to meet various landscapes and food, so although it was a very tough trip, I didn't feel 'tight' or 'difficult'. This 2 nights and 3 days plan is just an example, so please collect stamps of Kamaboko corps and pillars by your favorite route and take an AR photo.
