Turntable & Railway Historical Museum Tour (転車台&鉄道歴史館 見学ツアー)

4.0

Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

This tour is conducted by the Tenryu Hamanako Line, a local Shizuoka train line. Participants can tour Tenryu-Futamata Station's old railway turntable and the Railway Historical Museum. Railway turntables were facilities used during the time of steam locomotives to change the direction a train was running using a large rotating turntable. Today, electric and diesel trains which can run in either direction are common, but a turntable and railway roundhouse is still maintained at Tenryu-Futamata Station for visitors to view up close. In the Railway Historical Museum, you can see rare examples of tools and equipment actually used during the time of the Japanese National Railways Futamata Line, the predecessor to the current Tenryu Hamanako Line. Tours are held daily but tour start times vary by day, so be sure to check in advance.

レトロな歴史館と、転車台などが見学できます。孫は少し飽きてしまいましたが、僕はとても楽しかったです。

転車台が見られます。今ではとても貴重なものだそうです。鉄ちゃんは、もとよりこちら方面に行かれたら、見に行くことをおススメします。

転車台ツアーで見学できる。ただし時間が短いのでゆっくり見たい人は別の見学方法が出来るそうです。線路をマタギ構内を歩ける気分は最高です。

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
