Kokudo station is a famous photo-taking spot for those who enjoy photography. Its an old station that opened in 1930, and has never been repaired since. It even has machine-gun bullet marks from World War Ⅱ. It became an unmanned station in 1971, so its atmosphere is like an abandoned place.
However, this station is still used as a station of the JR East Japan Turumi line, and it even has an automatic ticket gate. It is accessible from Tokyo, and lately it has become a popular place to visit and take photos of a “ruin”.
It might be a good place to take photos of a slightly different Japan.
Here are some pictures posted on “2ch” a popular bulletin board in Japan.
You can see how many people come to this place if you search for it in Google.
