Tsugaru Railway, Stove Winter Train

The Tsugaru Railways run through the plains for Tsugaru peninsula from Tsugaru Goshogawara Station to Tsugaru Nakazato Station, a 45 minute ride with a total distance of 20.7 km (12.8 miles). The railway runs seasonal themed trains throughout the year for the entertainment of its passengers: the stove train in the winter, the furin (Japanese wind bell) train in the summer, and the suzumushi (bell cricket) train in the fall.
The tranquil rural landscape that can be seen from the train attracts many visitors. The Ashino Park (near Ashino Park Station) is another popular spot during the cherry blossom season. 


Winter Stove Train, a Special Social Event

Every year, an old-fashioned potbelly stove gains a spot on the train that runs through the snow field of Tsugaru plain. The red burning coals in the stove create a comfortable social atmosphere bringing visitors and local passengers together.
In contrast to the frigid outdoor cold, passengers can enjoy their time in the warm cozy train as surume (dried squid and cuttlefish) are prepared on the stove top and served.
*Limited 3 trains during daytime. Check for specific dates for December.
Train service may change under some circumstances.
