An interesting design choice for a building built right in front of a train station.

Right outside the JR Tamatsukuri Station in Osaka is a brand new building, Vierra Tamatsukuri, shaped and colored exactly like the very first train that serviced the station. Every floor is 2.5 times the size of a normal train, with a total of three floors. Inside are some restaurants, a kindergarten and a 24-hour fitness gym. Why anyone would want to get off a crowded train after a long day at the office and go work out in another huge train of the same color is beyond me. Maybe people will love it, who knows.

I'm sure the kids at the kindergarten will have fun.
