Takachiho Amaterasu Railway Reviews
朝イチのトロッコ電車に乗ることができラッキーだった。出発時間までの空き時間に手動のトロッコに乗せもらったのも楽しい思い出となった。運転手さんの名調子の説明を聴きながら、二つのトンネルを抜けるとあまてらす鉄道一番の見せ場である鉄橋中央部からの絶景を足下のプラスチック板から見下ろした。 more »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.
かっての高千穂鉄道が廃線になり、そのあと、高千穂駅から4キロほど、トロッコのような汽車で運行。途中，かっては日本一高い鉄橋であった高千穂鉄橋（１０５ｍの高さ）で停車、スリルを味わうことができる。鉄橋前の駅で停車、風が大丈夫か確認の上、動いて鉄橋の真ん中で止まる。途中の景色も日本の原風景を楽しめ最高です。運行も、トンネルの中ではミラーボールのようなものでトンネルの天井を照らし、鉄橋の上で止まった時... more »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.
Be sure to stop by early to buy tickets, if not you might get stuck waiting for a while.
One of a kind experience on an open air train. Has dedicated parking lot. Gorgeous views of the gorge. Great experience for kids.
