Izu: From Rugged Coastline to Inland Warmth

Watch Live in

5days 16hours 18min

Izu Peninsula is a famous hot springs area located about 1 hour by Shinkansen bullet train southwest of Tokyo. On this Train Cruise, we ride on 2 railways that travel the peninsula. On the eastern shore's Izu Kyuko Railway, we visit an attractive and mysterious area designated as a Geopark by UNESCO. On the Sunzu Line of the Izu Hakone Tetsudo, we are delighted by the train's popular animation character decorations and visit a retro unmanned station and historical temple. This is an opportunity to enjoy hot springs and taste the other attractions of Izu.

I'm going to keep an eye out for that Kanagawa episode.  I often watch videos on TV Kanagawa's youtube channel, looks pretty nice.

 

Also I'm glad to see this thread still going four and half years later.  If only I could go back and talk to younger miyakoji, so many things to warn him of... 😁

Miyazaki, located in southeastern Kyushu, is a sun-drenched prefecture facing the Pacific Ocean. In this episode, we travel 170 kilometers from north to south along its coastline, hopping on different trains named "Sunshine" or "Nichirin", which means the "sun" in Japanese. On our way, we have a spectacular view of the "Devil's Washboard", the huge wave-like rock formations on the seashore, savor sweet, delicious mangoes, and come across designer handbags and lampshades made of Japanese cedar. We enjoy the blessings from the sun and the sea in Miyazaki.

I just watched the episode and something seemed strange about the end of the line at Shibushi station, so i looked around a bit:

I guess the next time someone films there, the trip will end at Miyazaki, at around 6 minutes 30 seconds into the show...

 

ps: i was able to find all the locations shown on google maps and the views are really beautiful...

Yes the line goes for miles past the statuon. You can still see the corridor in google maps. Fairly familiar with the area.

 

And also surprized the train in the old park didñ't get a mention at the end. You know, considering 'train' cruise and all.
