The train that stops in a former train station for one occupant
Japanese railways took in three years ago, the decision to stop twice daily in Kami-Shirataki Station in Hokkaido, although here up and down a single passenger. A high school student goes to school by train and return to it at the end of the day, writes citylab.com.
When deciding the number of passengers at the station Kami-Shirataki dropped dramatically because it is isolated. Japanese railways station were preparing to close completely until they noticed that it is used daily by students.
It was therefore decided that the service be maintained until the finish high school. Moreover, the train journey schedule has been modified to fit with the program face.
This will finish high school in March this year, and the station will be permanently closed.
