Nagahama Railway Square, a must-see spot for railway enthusiasts, consists of three facilities: the former Nagahama Station Building, the oldest existing station building in Japan, the Nagahama Railway Culture Museum, and the Hokuriku Line Electrification Memorial Museum. At the former Nagahama station building, which was built in 1882, you can get a glimpse of how people lived at the time.
