Train Station that Inspired Persona 4 to be Closed in February

Train Station that Inspired Persona 4 to be Closed in February

Remember the lovely Yasoinaba countryside train station that appeared in Persona 4 and Persona 4 Golden? Its design was inspired by a real train station, to be more precise the one in Isawa-onsen in the Japanese Yamanashi Prefecture.

Unfortunately the station, that you can see below and that has involuntarily become a gaming landmark, will welcome its last train on February 6th. Completed in 1936, it survived World War II and will be closed after 78 years of honored service.

At the bottom of the post you can also see the sign warning about the closure, tweeted by @staffOfficer490. Behind this somber event is the construction of a brand new and modern station building.
