    Gifu Ena-shi Akechicho 469-4
    A local train line running 25.1-kilometer from Ena Station on the Chuo Main Line to the end point at Akechi Station. You can take in the tranquil rural scenery from the train window as it winds its way south through the highland area of Higashi-Mino. The area along the way is full of highlights including Iwamura Castle's town, Hanashiro Onsen with its elegant kaiseki cuisine featuring agar vegetable gelatin, and Taisho Village with all the ambiance of that bygone era. The Taisho Roman-go is an express train with a dining car that lets you enjoy seasonal Ena cuisine made with local ingredients, including mushroom dishes and courses featuring agar, a Yamaoka specialty.

    恵那と明智を結ぶ第三セクター鉄道。急勾配や農村風景の中を走ります。途中の岩村や終着明智など観光地があり、週末は賑わいます。

Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
