Japan’s Fruit-Shaped Bus Stops

(Photo: Impossible Isn’t Kitchible)

In 1990, Osaka, Japan held a huge exhibition called the Travel Expo to promote tourism. For 6 months, 23 million people visited the pavilions. Towns and cities far away from Osaka participated, including Konagai, a small town near Isahaya, Nagasaki Prefecture. To promote itself, the town of Konagai constructed 16 bus stops and shelters that were shaped like fruits. 25 years later, they’re still well-maintained and in use. You can see more photos of them at Amusing Planet, including bus stops shaped like watermelons, strawberries, cantaloupes, and oranges.
