The Story Behind The Train
Specially designed for taking in the view
The Kushiro Shitsugen Norokko Train runs between Kushiro Station and Tōro Station on the Senmo Main Line, passing through the glorious natural scenery of the Kushiro Wetlands, the largest wetlands in Japan. With broad, open windows and three Norokko-model observation cars, the train is specially designed to let passengers fully enjoy the expansive landscape. In the observation cars, there are also bench seats with movable backrests that allow you to face either side of the train.

From Kushiro Station, the verdant green Kushiro Shitsugen Norokko Train follows the winding Kushiro River before passing right through the heart of the Kushiro Wetlands. With the Akan Mountain Range visible in the distance, and forests and water all around you, relax and enjoy the refreshing breeze, while admiring the beautiful landscape, until you slowly arrive at the final destination of Tōro Station.
