There is a lot of heritage remaining from the railroads that supported Japan’s industry in Tsuyama City. The fan-shaped locomotive depot is a depot for steam locomotives which is constructed in the shape of a fan around the railroad turntable so as to enable more locomotives to be housed there. The JR Tsuyama station fan-shaped locomotive depot is the second largest in Japan.
