Tenryu Hamanako Railroad | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Hamamatsu Station 

[Tenryu Hamanako Railroad]

A leisurely trip on a train that stops at every station

The so-called "Tenhama Line" runs a distance of 67.7 km on the north side of Lake Hamana. The locomotive turntable at Tenryu Futamata Station, the station building, platform, and bridge are some of the 36 nationally registered Tangible Cultural Properties located all along the line. Visiting them by train makes for a fun trip, and the landscape you see from the carriage windows invites poignant feelings of nostalgia. Popular tours include tours of the turntable and roundhouse, held every day (reservation not required / additional fee required), and tours in which you can experience the train wash system and turntable from inside the train, held on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays (reservation and additional fee required).
