Takachiho Amaterasu Railway

Beautiful Scenery Entertainment Food & Drink Insta-worthy Trendy Places

Known for its deep connection with the Shinto religion, the town of Takachiho is blessed with an abundance of nature, from its lush woodlands to its famous gorges. For oneself to truly absorb the fantastical beauty of the nature here, you absolutely must ride the Takachiho Amaterasu Railway. 
After being damaged by a typhoon, this railway was revamped as a tourist destination for travelers to enjoy a scenic route on an original cart found only in Takachiho. A standout on this attraction is the Takachiho Bridge standing at 105 meters tall, originally one of Japan’s highest bridges in the 1970’s. 
Some quirky bonuses on this ride are that the tunnels illuminate via projected images, and the train conductor blows bubbles. You can imagine how the bubbles create an essence of a daydream while you seemingly float in the sky. What more could you possibly want?
Take a ride on two types of carts, go sip on a nice cup of coffee at the café, and collect a souvenir while you’re here!
