The Watarase Keikoku Sightseeing Railways

watarase keikoku

Located just a little ways outside of Tokyo, this sightseeing train is a great way to escape the bustle of the big city and refresh with beautiful views of nature.

The Watarase Keikoku Railways’ sightseeing “Torokko” train will take you from Kiryu Station in Gunma Prefecture to Mafuji Station in Tochigi Prefecture.
After a calm, crowd-free journey, you can hop on a bus from Mafuji Station to the more well-known Nikko, also located in Tochigi Prefecture.

One of Japan’s World Heritage Sites, this shrine pays homage to the Edo Bakufu’s 200-year reign and its first Shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu.
While you’re in the area, you can also experience some great wagyu, or special Japanese beef. The area is known for Joshu wagyu. Enjoy it “yakiniku” style or as a steak.
