Amarube iron bridge "sky station" elevator

"Amarube crystal tower" was done!

 Amarube iron bridge which supported service of JR San'in Main Line from completion of 1912 for approximately 100 years.
 In August, 2010, they were changed to concrete bridge newly, but it was saved the field, and three supporting beams of JR Amarube Station side were reborn as Amarube iron bridge "station of the sky" prospects facility
in May, 2013.
Many people use  until now, but uphill slope of sharp slope to fine-view facility of user big; burdened.
 Therefore, for convenience improvement of local activation, tourist and JR user and burden on elderly people reduction, we installed elevator (nickname: Amarube crystal tower) and started the use from November 26, 2017. Everybody come by all means.
