Iwamizawa Station (Iwamizawa City) consists of multiple facilities, including the station and a community center for general activities. Free art galleries, a public space for small music concerts, and a tourist information center are some of the things you can find there. The design of this station is unique because old railway rails are used in the construction. As this building got an award for unique architecture, it is admired by those who like design. There is a small place exhibiting old rails and the ideas behind the construction. Iwamizawa was an important transit point when the coal industry prospered there and Japan imported rails from the USA, the UK, and German.
