Oigawa Railway

To the north of Shizuoka City nestled in the deep valleys and foothills of the majestic Southern Japan Alps, lie a number of remote and rustic villages where the way of life have barely changed since the last century. The area is known as an important producer of green tea, and the handful of small and sleepy hot spring (onsen) resorts have long attracted visitors looking to get away from it all amongst the abundant nature. For those without their own transport, the region is only accessible by taking a ride on Oigawa Railway, one of Japan’s most scenic and unique railway lines.
