Usuitouge Tetsudo Bunka Mura碓氷峠鉄道文化むら

Museum / Science Museum

This is a railroad theme park located in Annaka City’s Matsuida Town established on the site of the former JR Yokokawa Locomotive Depot rail yard. The main attraction is the locomotive engineer experience in which visitors can drive a real 108-ton electric locomotive (reservation required). Inside the park is a Railway Museum where visitors can learn about the history of the now-abandoned Usui Line and the Railway Display Hall which houses more than 30 valuable train cars. Visitors can ride a steam locomotive that goes around the park, a miniature steam locomotive and a trolley train, making this park popular among both children and railroad fans alike.

ここ「碓氷峠鉄道文化むら」と横川駅の間にアプトの道(起点)があります。「碓氷峠鉄道文化むら」から峠の湯までの2.6キロを走行するトロッコがあるんですが乗れなくて残念です。15時代にトロッコ列車の最終運行なんで、早めに来ないといけませんね。

          Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
