Forget Harry Potter And Platform 9¾ – This Train Station In Japan Only Has One Passenger
The Kami-Shirataki train station is located in Japan’s north island of Hokkaido, three years ago due to its remote location and ending of freight trains, the Japan Railway decided to close it down.
However, they changed their minds after they discovered a young girl used the station to go to high school every day.
For years now trains have stopped at the station just for her.
Japan Railway will keep the train station open until she leaves school.
The girl is expected to graduate on March 26, 2016, when the station will then be closed.
Every day only two trains stop at the Kami-Shirataki station with a unique timetable depending on when the girl needs to go to school and back.
