Mizuma Railway is a company with a railway route of only 5.5 km from Kaizuka Station to Mizuma-Kannon Station. At the terminal station(Mizuma Kannon Station) You can see a spectacular sight with moss balls hanging from the roof.
Why did this company decide to decorate the roof of the station with many moss balls? There is the reason for the management of Mizuma Railway is not an easy task. The company should be managed while saving money, like Moss ball can survive only on water, the meaning is to continue the railroad business in a modest way.
The approximately 1,000 moss balls installed make a unique space in the station. There are many beautiful Japanese gardens and bonsai gardens in Kyoto and other parts of Japan, but this is probably the only station in Japan where moss balls are hung from the ceiling.
