  • There used to be a Kusagaru Electric Railway connecting Shin-Karuizawa Station to Kusatsu Onsen Station, and this is the site of Kita-Karuizawa Station, which is located in the middle of it. It seems to have played an important role in the transportation of sulfur mined in a lot of tourists and mines visiting summer and hot springs (Kusatsu hot spring) at that time when it was operating though it was a grass light electric railway which has become an abandoned line now. There were 18 stations along the line, but this is the only place where the station building remains, and the wooden station building with the roof like a shrine and a temple was wonderful...

  • It is the site of the station building of the Kusalight Electric Railway Line which connected Karuizawa and Kusatsu Onsen from the third year of the control to 1963. The station building is made in Japanese style architecture reminiscent of a temple and shrine. On the side of the building, there is a replica of the beetle train Deki 12 that was towing, but this was wooden. There is a small Kusa Light Electric Railway Museum in the tourist information center next door, and 1/10 model is on display. A map of about 60cm long with topographic maps of that time, the station, and the ticket is sold. The real thing of Deki 12 is preserved in Karuizawa station station building memorial hall.
