Enjoy Tohoku Autumn by Trains

Resort Minori

Resort Minori  is reminiscent of the old traditional train of Japan, gliding through the beautiful Naruko Gorge with vibrant red-orange colors covering the space to take visitors to enjoy the vast golden rice fields – a sign for the harvest season is approaching, slowly ice. In addition to the extremely spacious seats, the train also offers services such as a playroom and library for children, or a "kokeshi" doll drawing experience at the Kokeshi-kan stop.

Train POKEMON with YOU
Line: Ichinoseki ↔ Kesennuma, belonging to Line Ofunato.
