Kofuku Train Station



Kofuku train station in Hokkaido is famous in Japan for its visitors who continue, for 26 years now, to post business cards, railway tickets or wishes for love and happiness on the walls and ceiling of the building. However, due to its age, the wooden building is starting to fall apart and needs renovation. The station has been closed and the construction has started on September 2, with the building being expected to open again at the beginning of November. Business cards, photos, railway tickets and expired commuter passes are pinned up on the waiting room walls and ceiling. Visitors write as well their wishes, such as, “I wish for a cute baby when it is born,” and, “I wish for the good health of my family.”
