Japan Runs Train Through Closed Station Just So One Child Can Go to School


Situated in Japan’s north island of Hokkaido, the Kami-Shirataki train station has only two trains that stop by every day on a special timetable.

It all started three years ago, when Japan Railways decided to shut down it’s services in the remote location, as ridership had dramatically fallen. That is until they noticed a young girl still using it to get to school.

When the company learned of their only passenger, they decided to keep the station running until she graduates. They even went the extra mile and re-scheduled the train’s timetable according to the girl’s schedule, according to CCTV News.
