Fukuyama Station in Hiroshima Prefecture is located right by the 399-year-old Fukuyama Castle. Bullet trains whiz in and out of the station on a daily basis, and over 20,000 people pass though it every day. Back in 1975, parking at Fukuyama station consisted of nothing more than a ticket booth and stanchions in a ring. The outer ring formed the limits of the lot, and additional cars were parked inside the ring.
It looks a bit haphazard in the first photo, but here’s the same lot from the other side. Here, with the station (and main tower of Fukuyama Castle) in the background, things look a bit more orderly. There are lots of interesting cars in the scenes, including a Honda Life StepVan, Mitsubishi Minica, numerous Corollas, Carinas, and kujira Crowns, and because this is Hiroshima, Mazda Familias. What catches your eye?
