Nice ride up the mountain alongside Hozugawa River. It is a 25 min ride and cars are generally full. They do allow you to travel by standing up. One of the cars is open and it is fun to be on

The Saga Torokko Station is located right beside JR Saga-Arashiyama Station, it is only a four-station trip beside the Hozu River, depositing you near the Hozu River Boat ride launch point. There are two types of cars: regular which is indoors and an open-air, with canopy - guaranteed you will get wet in rain type of train which is ironically named "Rich" car. Recommend if the weather is good, to reserve your ticket on this "Rich" car. You get a much better view of the scenery. The trip will be about 30 minutes. You look down on the river and you can see the Hozu River Boats going down. At times the view is breathtaking. Be forewarned, it is noisy. Not necessarily a place a couple can have a quiet conversation. However, the view and the ambiance make it a memorable event. Highly recommend.

We boarded this train and had no idea what to expect. The view was superb. It was so cold that day so it was a purely new experience to board an open-air moving train in cold weather! Love the mountain views along the way!
