The city of Koriyama, a strategically important transportation center since times of old, has developed in tandem with the railroads that serve it. Koriyama Station and its vicinity, from the late 19th-century Meiji Era to the early 20th-century Showa Era and to the present day, are reproduced in an elaborate diorama – Japan's largest permanent exhibit based on N-gauge (1/150 scale) models. A diorama show, featuring trains from different eras, is very popular among visitors of all ages.
