Learn it from Japan – It runs a train for single passenger! Know why

Tokyo: Japan has showcased a perfect example of how a government should value its citizens.

It might be hard to believe, but the Japan Railways for the last three years, has been running a train for a single passenger.

The train runs through the Kami-Shirataki station in the northern island of Hokkaido.

The Japan Railways had decided to shut down the station, but when it learnt that a school girl uses it on a daily basis, it decided to run it till she graduates.
