In the suburbs of Osaka stands Kayashima Station. It has a rectangular hole cut into the roof of the elevated platform to accommodate a 700 year old camphor tree that pokes its head out the top. As the station expanded over the years there were calls to cut it down but a strong local community and a little bit of superstition have kept it standing.
