TA station is a special location. It serves as the stage of many stories of people’s life, some dramatic, some sweet, visiting, departing, meeting for the first time, bidding farewell, or just simply, living. A prayer accompanies the design of the station, wishing to leave a vivid impression, to bring a little piece of happiness to people who go through it and to stand there as a part of the scenery of Kyoto for years to come.

Kyoto, Japan’s former Imperial capital with more than one thousand years of exquisitely preserved history is home to two thousand temples and shrines, complete with authentic Japanese gardens and a kaleidoscope of festivals, ceremonies and rituals year-round. Seventeen are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, living evidence of golden age Japan. Yet, the city is also modern, pulsing with up-to-the-moment arts, design and culture.
