Fukaya Station

It should be noted that while it can be accessed via Blackberry and is very convenient, Wikipedia is an imperfect source of Japanese rail line info.

One result: I belatedly realized at one point day before yesterday that I was on the wrong train, going the wrong way. I began looking for an interesting looking stop to get off at and was soon obliged by the appearance of a most atypical Japanese train station.

The station and several buildings in the town square are very late 19th century English in character. I think the train station may actually be restored to its former exterior appearance, though the interior is quite modern.

The phone booths are new but have the same look.
There is also, in the park adjoining the station, a monument...
To a man of some considerable substance...

I feel really inadequate right now.
