Japanese Railroad Adventures

The Yamaguchi Line


Yamaguchi C-57 Locomotive

Yamaguchi Steam Train

Trip Highlights:

The Yamaguchi Line is in Western Japan on the Island of Honshu. The Yamaguchi Line steam train runs between Ogori and Tsuwano. Ogori connects to one of the north-south mainlines running through Japan. The closest major city to this line is Hiroshima. It is easy to take a Shinkansen or a limited express train from one of the major airports and get off at Ogori. Since the steam train is a special train, you cannot use the Japan Rail Pass on it. You need to purchase a ticket for the train in advance as all seats are reserved.
