Sagano Romantic Train

Main content starts here.


A classic red and yellow train with wooden interior, the Sagano Romantic Train will take you on a 25 minute, 7.3 kilometer journey between Kameoka Torokko Station and Saga Torokko Station. Traveling along the Hozugawa River with the soothing rocking of the train and the humorous announcements from the conductor, you can enjoy sakura (cherry blossoms) in spring, the rushing river in summer, snow in the winter, and the most popular, autumn foliage! The train also slows down at beautiful spots so travelers can take pictures.

*"The Rich" (open-air) car tickets are only available on the day of boarding.
*For more information on the train tickets, please check the homepage of the Sagano Romantic Train.(
