Maybe we expected much more after reading reviews. The ride in was a novelty but the same can't be said of the ride back out. We seemed to be passing through more tunnels in the latter. Would add that the effort to get here did...More

Don't miss this natural beauty. As It was not the peak season, we could get on the train easily, seat wherever we wanted and moved on both sides to see the nice scene. We recommended you to take the train with 'open carriage'. You can...More

Took the train to Keyakidaira for a day trip. We went up on an 'open carriage' so that we can take pictures without reflection on the Window pane. The ride through the mountains was both refreshing as well as breath taking. It is worth the...More
