Waited for a train on the platform of Shimbashi Station. Looking at the opposite platform, I found a figure standing alone. The train left just a few minutes ago. The figure was the only figure I could see on the platform. This station is busy. So the next train would come soon. On the other side of the figure, there is a square in front of the station. And a steam locomotive is placed in the square.
This station is identified as the birthplace of Japanese railway. When 100 years have passed since the Japanese railway started the business, the steam locomotive was placed there as a memorial. However, the first train station in this country was not this station accurately. It was built near this station. But it no longer exists.
