Nagakute Kosenjo Station is a station on Nagoya's Linimo which runs from Fujigaoka Station (with connections to the Higashiyama line of Nagoya's subway) and the terminus of Yakusa.
The Linimo was built at great expense for Aichi Expo 2005, Nagoya's Linimo service is a Maglev (magnetic-levitated) train and claims to be the first such urban Maglev service.
The 9km-long Linimo line serves the eastern suburbs of Nagoya, Nagakute, and is convenient for visiting the Toyota Automobile Museum near Geidai Dori Station and the Ai Chikyu Haku Kinen Koen (the former site of Aichi Expo 2005 and now returned to a park).
Nagakute Kosenjo Station is very much in the middle of suburbia but is convenient for students and staff attending Aichi Gakuen Daigaku, Aichi University of Arts & Sciences, Sugiyama Jogakuen University and Aichi Shukutoku University.
The Linimo is not cheap and a ride from Fujigaoka to Yakusa costs 370 yen. A one-day Linimo pass is 800 yen for adults. The first train from Fujigaoka towards Yakusa departs at 5.50am with the last train at 0.05am. In the opposite direction the first train leaves Yakusa at 5.30am with the last train at 11.43pm.
Fujigaoka Station on the Higashiyama Subway Line is 14 stops and about 30 minutes from Nagoya Station.
