The world continues to amaze us. Today i am giving you another reason to love japan, the most humble country with kind hearted japanese people. This is one of those stories that will fill your heart with joy and leave you smiling. This story got popularity recently on social media & some said its not true. but you have to read it first to believe in it. It turns out that in Japan there is a train that every day is used by one person , and this is a young girl who goes to school. In a rare case, japan railways, for the past three years is going extra mile to pick just one passenger. Every day the line Kami-Shirataki pass only two trains , one transports the girl to school and the other it back . The train timetable depends on the schedule of the establishment of an unnamed child.
For years, there’s been just one passenger who regularly waits at the Kyu-Shirataki* train station, on the island of Hokkaido, Japan: A high-school girl, on her way to class. Trains stop there only a few times a day—once to pick up the girl for school and a few times after the school day is over.
Japan Railways—the group that operates the country’s railway network—has kept the underused station open for years for a good reason. Ridership at the Kyu-Shirataki station and a few neighboring ones had dramatically fallen because of the remote location, and freight service had ended there as well. But students depend on the train for transit, and parents asked that the company keep the station open for their children. Japan Railways will keep operating the station until March, when the fiscal year ends—and when this teen is expected to graduate, according to the Asahi Shimbun.*
According to reports, Kana Harada, who is among the 40-odd residents of the village of Shirataki, is the only person to board the special train at 7:04 am and return in the evening at 5:08 pm sharp. It is expected the girl to complete their training on March 26 this year, when the line will make its last course. Curiously, the Japanese Railways planned to stop destination to the remote station until you realize that this is the way to move a child to his educational institution , it led them to reconsider its opinion and let the train go .
Speaking on a video, Kana said: 'I got on and off of this train for the past three years and this station's presence has become something I have taken for granted.
'I do feel sad to think that it will disappear. I am now filled with gratitude.' Trains stop at the station based on the schoolgirl's timetable and pass by when she is on holiday on her classes are off. The station is served by the single-track and lies 50 miles from the official starting point of the line at Shin-Asahikawa. It is now scheduled to close permanently on March 26.
