Akita Nairiku Jukan Railway

秋田内陸線

The Akita Nairiku Jukan Railway is a popular sightseeing railway running from Kakunodate Station through beautiful and sparsely populated countryside north to Takanosu.

However during weekdays the line is little used and the company operating the 94km line and 29 stations faces financial difficulties in turning a profit.
