This photo doesn't convey the activity of a busy train station. Part of the reason is that the entrance is up ahead and around the corner. Also, I think that Sendai Station (a couple miles away) is more active. It may also be due to the recent large earthquake and tsunami.
It's hard to believe that a few miles to the east, everything was washed away by the tsunami. In fact, the area along the tracks north of the Natori River is filled with prefabricated structures for those who are now homeless.
