Best scenic rides and train views in Japan

All over the world, scenic rail tours have been revived as an alternative to traditional sightseeing. Japan is no exception. A special term has even been coined in the Japanese language to describe those who are pleasantly obsessed with rail travel – densha otaku, literally translated ?train nerd.?If using your Japan Rail Pass to travel about the country, why not include some scenic views in your itinerary" There?s no better way to enhance the value of your travels than to make the journey, and not just the destination, part of the fun!Most of the scenic trains listed below accept the JR Pass for all or part of the journey, and all offer a spectacular train view. Use this handy guide when planning your next train ride.Mount Fuji from the ShinkansenThe Tokaido Shinkansen line is located in the Shizuoka Prefecture of the Kanto Region. The line passes between Tokyo and Kyoto, and right from your seat, you?ll be treated to the famous bullet train side view of Mount Fuji. Plan your seating according to your destination for the best viewing.If you?re headed south to Nagoya or Kyoto, the mountain will appear to the right of the train; if headed north to Tokyo, the left. Access to the Tokaido Shinkansen line is completely covered by the JR Pass.Hisatsu Line in KyushuThe Hisatsu Line is located in the Kumamoto Prefecture on the southern island of Kyushu. The island itself is full of attractions and beautiful scenery. The Hisatsu Line is known to pass through many areas that offer the best views.The line services Kaiji Station; the word kaiji means ?sea road,? hinting at the ocean views you?ll enjoy when traveling to Hitoyoshi City.  Kumagawa River, one of the top three most rapid rivers in Japan, flows along the Hisatsu Line.Hanwa Line in KansaiLocated in Osaka Prefecture of the Kansai Region, the Hanwa Line runs from Osaka City to Wakayama. In late March, the Hanwa Line is ideal for viewing sakura cherry blossoms. You?ll be delighted to find your train view filled with pink or white blossoms, often swaying peacefully in the breeze along both sides of the railway.Gono Line in North HonshuThis line takes you to the northernmost reaches of the island of Honshu, from Akita Prefecture to Aomori Prefecture. This northern exposure makes the Gono Line ideal for winter viewing of Japan scenery. The rail line often runs alongside the Sea of Japan, placing you between the inland snowscape and the ?raging winter seas? common to northern Japan, complete with mystical natural rock formations.Views from the Gono Line have been described as ?some of the best coastal scenery of any railway in the world.? You?ll also be treated to views of the beautiful Mount Iwaki.Several types of trains service the Gono Line. If you?re looking for a truly opulent experience, try the Resort Shirakami. This luxury train is often booked up well in advance; do not fear, however ? the local trains afford the same spectacular views. Additional special trains run during the summer...
