4.0

Scenic Railway (Trolley, etc.)

This line on the Yamagata Railway runs from Akayu Station in Koriyama, Nanyo City to Arato Station in Shirataka Town, Nishiokitama County. A local line open since 1913, it connects to the Yamagata Shinkansen and Ou Main Line from Akayu Station, and the Yonesaka Line from Imaizumi Station in Imaizumi, Nagai City. There are onsen tours of the trackside onsen, like Akayu Onsen, and in spring there are cherry blossom spots including Eboshiyama Senbonzakura and Kamanokoshi Sakura.

Review of Yamagata Railway

Reviewed:2020/02/13 熊野大社へ
熊野大社の最寄り駅の宮内駅まで乗りました。宮内駅には駅長さんとして白うさぎがいるそうです。訪れた時は臨時休業になっていて見ることができませんでした。山形鉄道は本数が少ないので一本逃すと一時間待ちになってしまう事も。駅の待合室はストーブもあり暖かく本が置いてあるので漫画を読んで時間潰しができるのでよかったです。
Reviewed:2019/08/29 まっすぐ続く線路が旅情を誘う
赤湯駅から終点まで乗りました。
緑に囲まれた中で真っ直ぐに線路が伸びている、運転席からの景色はオススメです。都会では味わえず、景色を問わずいつでも旅情を誘う風景です。
アテンダントがいませんでした。
Reviewed:2019/04/26 桜には早かったが
荒砥駅から長井駅まで乗りました。花見ツアーに参加したので、最上川堤防の千本桜がお目当てだったのですが、時期が少し早く咲いていませんでした。でも菜の花はきれいでしたし、畑にノビタキの群れを見たときは、バードウオッチャーの私としては胸の高まりを覚えました。ローカル列車の雰囲気はじゅうぶん味わえましたね。

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
