  • AMETUCHI

    The San’in area is home to rich nature and various prominent cultural locations, including shrines, breweries, kabuki theaters, and sumo wrestling venues, making this region the source of many Japanese myths.

  • SL YAMAGUCHI

    Enjoy a train adventure reminiscent of the past—complete with an iconic whistle—along the charming Yamaguchi Line featuring hot springs, canyons, and castle towns. Beginning in September 2017, passengers will be able to ride newly manufactured cars with the latest amenities and true-to-period designs. In addition to a comfortable, retro feel, the SL YAMAGUCHI includes a public area where passengers can learn more about the train through hands-on experiences and exhibits.

  • Iyonada Monogatari

    Featuring two trains with different color schemes, the Iyonada Monogatari is available in madder red reminiscent of the sunset capping the days at Iyonada, and in gold representing both the sun’s glow and citrus fruit. Passengers aboard one of these two retro-style trains will enjoy a delicious meal with unique Shikoku and Ehime dishes while taking in the peaceful scenic Iyonada Sea just outside the window.
