Aikoku Traffic Memorial Hall Is Famous for Steam Locomotive and Tickets for Happy -Aikoku Station in Obihiro-

July 18th, 2016

Aikoku Station (愛国駅) is a former station in Aikoku-cho, Obihiro city and is named "Aikoku Traffic Memorial Hall (愛国交通記念館)". Particularly, by slogans "From Country of Love to Happiness (愛の国から幸福へ)" created in 1973, tickets from Aikoku station (Aikoku means Country of Love in Japanese language) to Kofuku station (幸福駅) became very popular. However, Hiroo Line (広尾線) was abolished for money-losing routes. Although the Aikoku station was closed down, a station building was stored. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
