Shin-Fuji Station 

[Gakunan Electric Train]

An enchanting view emerges from the dark of night beyond the window of the train

Gakunan Electric Train is located in the southern foothills of Mt. Fuji, where it joins Yoshiwara and Gakunan-Enoo Stations. The railway and its tracks, the stations and the train cars are the objects of a wide-ranging designation as part of the "Night View Inheritance of Japan". When night falls, the sight of the beautiful structures of the stations and platforms emerging from the gloom is truly enchanting. Add to this the light from inside the train carriages as they slip smoothly into the station, and the effect is nothing short of therapeutic. If you're a fan of nighttime views you are also sure to be captivated by the scenery from the train as it threads its way between industrial structures enveloped in an air of fantasy. "Night view trains" which let passengers enjoy the nighttime scenery with all the lights off also run periodically.
