Discover west of Japan ~ 🚂 🚊 🚞 Kyoto Tango Railway ✔️ For friends who had enough shopping in Osaka or Kyoto, you may consider taking the Aka-Matsu sightseeing train ride to explore the good old scenery of Japan between Amanohashidate and Nishi-Maizuru.

Stepping on the Tango express railway is a special treat! The trains are extraordinarily clean and well maintained, but what makes them really special is that the style of decoration is so old fashioned! The trains are an absolute joy to ride and quite charming!...More

Like all of Japan's public transport the KTR was punctual, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately it's not on the Japan Pass but was cheap enough. The station had plenty of lockers. The big ones are inside a back corridor.

Be careful which rail service you use when coming here from Kyoto as there is a private line that will cost JR Rail pass holders a large amount. Taking the Tango along the bay gives one a tremendous sense of being rural in Japan on...More
