The Sagano Scenic Railway, also known as the Sagano Romantic train, is a must-visit destination for travelers looking to experience the stunning natural beauty of Japan’s Hozukyo Ravine. The train leisurely traverses a 25-minute route from Saga torokko station to Kameoka torokko Station, providing a front-row seat to the ravine’s panoramic views.

Whether you visit during spring, summer, fall, or winter, you’ll be greeted by a visual spectacle that’s sure to take your breath away. Cherry blossoms in spring, lush greens in summer, Japanese maple in fall, and a dusting of snow in winter – all four seasons offer a delightful experience.

Saga torokko station, which sees the train’s first departures, is conveniently located adjacent to JR Saga-Arashiyama Station. Travelers can reach the station from Kyoto Station in just 15 minutes via the Sagano Line. Once at Saga torokko station, visitors can rent a cycle to explore the surrounding area or visit the Diorama Kyoto Japan, one of the country’s largest collections of model trains.

The rent-a-cycle service is a great way to explore the surrounding area and immerse yourself in the local culture. The bikes are available for rental at Saga torokko station, and visitors can choose from a variety of models, including electric bicycles.
