Kofuku (Happiness) Station

Visit the happiest train station on earth!

  • Landscape

Kofuku Station is a now-closed railway station in the city of Obihiro. Even after its closure as a working station, it remains a popular sightseeing location where visitors come to wish for good luck as ‘Kofuku’ literally means ‘Happiness’ in Japanese.

Before the railway line was abolished, the train ride between Kofuku Station and Aikoku (meaning “country of love”) Station on this line was an extremely popular ride to take.

At the site, visitors can purchase a big train ticket which has the message ‘Bound for Happiness’ printed on it as a souvenir. Make sure to ring the 'Happy Bell' for extra good luck!
