Project Description: I created an image of "Kareigawa Station", which is a JR train station in Kagoshima Kirishima, Japan. Kareigawa station is a the oldest wooden ground station in Kagoshima State, and it was chosen as "National Registered Cultural Heritage" because of its history. Now it is an unmanned station, but many tourists visit the site to explore the history of elegant wooden buildings in Japan. It is an exquisite wooden station building that goes well with a warm southern country scenery. The atmosphere of the station is full of unique retro-style nostalgia. I think it is better to protect and preserve traditions and history for future generations just like Kareigawa Station has been protected as a legacy to the present generation for more than 100 years.
