Does not offer much to people, But if your a train fanatic like me, you will love this railway. Has only 3 active rail cars, but they have some vintage locomotives near their shed area. Also if your into old abandon tracks they got that too.

This newly reconditioned/redesigned train was a pleasure and a privilege to travel in. It runs from Otsuki station to Kawaguichiko station. There's only two return runs on the weekdays and three runs on the weekend. We travelled on a monday, dec 26 and there were many empty seats in the unreserved carriage. The ride was cosy, and the wide windows offered beautiful views. From floor to ceiling, shutters to tray tables; everything was furnished in a beautiful Pine wood. Probably locally sourced and commissioned.

The unreserved seats are included in the Tokyo Wide pass. For the reserved seats and the carriage with a tour guide and snacks, there are additional charges.

Kawaguichiko station is where Mount Fuji is.
