  • I was lucky to be able to catch the torokko train in the morning. It was also a pleasant memory that I was given a manual trolley in my spare time until departure time. Listening to the driver's explanation of his name, he looked down from the plastic board under his feet the superb view from the central part of the iron bridge, which is the best place for the railway to come through the two tunnels.

  •  The Takachiho Railway became a scrapped line, and after that, it was operated by a train like a truck about 4 kilometers from Takachiho Station. On the way, you can stop at Takachiho Iron Bridge (105m high), which was the tallest iron bridge in Japan, and enjoy the thrill. Stop at the station in front of the iron bridge, check if the wind is okay, move and stop in the middle of the iron bridge. The scenery on the way is also great to enjoy the original scenery of Japan. In the tunnel, the tunnel lights up the ceiling of the tunnel, and when it stops on the iron bridge, the soap bubbles are blown, and the handmade device is fun so as not to get tired somehow. At any rate, such a railway is only here.  However, it is not possible to make a reservation in advance before the previous day, and you have to buy a ticket on the day. When I went in the afternoon the day before, I waited for an hour and a half. On weekdays, 9 hours and 40 minutes in the morning are the best trains. On Weekends and holidays, 9 o'clock is the best. The capacity of the session is 30 people, but if you go about 30 minutes ago, it seems to be all right. In addition, if it is crowded, you can buy a ticket on a later train on the day. I'll go at 9:30 and buy a ticket for the afternoon train. In the meantime, you can publish another place and then go back.
