Enjoy the beauty of the valley at arm’s length – Sagano Romantic Train

The 7.3 km Sagano Romantic Train line winds along the edge of the Hozugawa Ravine from Saga Torokko Station to Kameoka Toroko Station. The 25-minute ride (one way) is open all year, and the views and colors change with the seasons (ex: cherryblossoms in spring, green leaves in summer, red-leaves in fall, and snow in winter). The train slows down at especially scenic vantage points to allow passengers to fully appreciate the views. Reserved seats only, and no smoking in any carriages.
