Taipei, Dec. 4 (CNA) The Taipei Railway Station and JR (Japan Railways) Osaka Station became sister stations on Friday, with Taipei-Osaka commemorative tickets selling out shortly after going on sale.
Taiwan Railways Administration Director-General Chou Yung-hui (周永暉) said the Taipei station handles over 500,000 passengers a day and is a transportation hub like the Osaka station.
Becoming sister stations will allow the two entities to affirm their friendship, Chou said, adding that the two stations will also introduce mutually beneficial measures in the future. [FULL STORY]
