Breathtaking winter views and warm charm by rail

 

Take the JR Tadami Line for breathtaking views of rustic alpine scenery and charming local towns in Okuaizu. This train line runs west from Aizu-Wakamatsu Station, through the mountainous interior of Fukushima Prefecture. The most famous views are of and from the No. 1 Tadami River Bridge, which stretches across a river between Aizu-Nishikata and Aizu-Hinohara stations. From the nearby viewpoint, visitors can watch trains cross the bridge where it peeks out between the trees crowding each river bank. During winter, visitors can enjoy stunning views of snow-covered mountains, frozen lakes, and local houses steeped in snow. In February, the towns in the region host snow festivals that include spectacular snow sculptures.

 

How to get there

 

From Koriyama Station on the Tohoku Shinkansen line, ride the Banetsu West Line to Aizu-Wakamatsu Station, where the Tadami Line begins. The No. 1 Tadami River Bridge viewpoint at Mishima-juku is a short bus ride from Aizu-Miyashita Station.
