Structure is mostly exposed

This is a hut built on top of the abolished Kanyake Station. This station was part of the Kajiyabara Line, a railway line owned by the Japan National Railway (JNR). This railroad once connected Itano Station to Kajiyabara Station in Itanocho, Tokushima Prefecture. Due to low occupancy rates even before the rise of automobiles in the 60s and 70s, it was infamous as one of the most deficit railroad projects in Japan. It was eventually abolished on January 16, 1972 (Showa 47).

How are walking times calculated?
Walking times are estimated with a modified approach to Naismith’s rule to account for elevation gains/losses and other practical considerations that require a more conservative bias. The basis of our calculations assumes a speed of 4 kilometers per hour on flat land. Learn more here.
