When I was in Japan about ten years ago, I recall seeing a movie on the VHS rental racks about a guy working at a remote train station, possibly in the north of Japan? I seem to recall that the cover/poster had the station agent standing in a snowfall, and I think he was played by a much-loved actor, but I can't recall the title or the actor. I believe it's a dramatic film from the mid-to-late 1990s. Does this description ring any bells? I'd like to finally see it.

Sounds like Poppoya starring Ken Takakura.

Based on a book. DVD available at Amazon Japan.
