As we have some time to spare, we went to sit this open top rail ride on I think an unused rail track. We pass by some scenic spots in Takachiho town and stop a nice valley for some pictures. I would think it is something to do if you are done with exploring the gorge.

The view was quite nice, but if they had bilingual announcement, it would be much better ! 解説をして下さるオジサマ方が時々楽しい 冗談を交えつつお話しして下さるのですが、 外国から来た家族が全く理解できない…と嘆いていたので 録音でも構わないので、外国人の方が分かるような英語の アナウンスなどあるといいかなぁ…と思いました。 売店のソフトクリームが美味しくて驚きました(笑) 途中で風の確認をし、強いと通れないようなこともあるようです。 ここは、ちょっと1人で訪れるには淋しいかな?と 思いましたが、運転をして下さるオジサマ方 皆さん優しく写真なども撮って下さり、楽しめました。
