This Station In Japan Runs Just For One Passenger

One of the most interesting story in Japan is that there is this train station Kami-Shirataki in the northernmost island of Hokkaido – Japan where only one train stops only for 2 times in a day, One when a high school girl leaves for school and the other when she returns.

There has been only one passenger waiting at the Kami-Shirataki train station for more than three long years and it is the decision of Japan Railway has made.


This station is in the remote location so the passengers count has decreased dramatically and the authorities were about to shut the Kami-Shirataki train station until they got to know about this school girl who travels in this train daily, so the Japain Railway has decided that they will not shut down the train services at Kami-Shirataki train station until this school girl graduates.

The train’s timetable has also been set according to the girl’s schedule. Isn’t this amazing ?
