Travel with a Limited Express along the Pacific Ocean

The Kuroshio is the most frequent train, connecting Kii peninsula, Kyoto, Shin-Osaka and Tennoji. Whereas, the Ocean Arrow is faster and has the advantage of having large, scenic windows. On this latter train, lounge seats (non-reserved) are the best spot to view the Pacific Ocean. Have a good trip! 

0 KM - Shingu Station

13 KM - 0H17 - Nachi Station

Only local trains stop here. Take a bus in front of the station and get off at Taki-mae to reach the sacred 133-m-high Nachi Waterfall.

15 KM - 0H15 - Kii-Katsura Station

An onsen town where the most famous of them, the Bokido hot spring (part of Hotel Urashima) allows you to bathe in a cave while gazing at the Pacific Ocean.

95 KM - 1H43 - Shirahama Station

A popular summer vacation destination, yet too crowded in high season to be really enjoyable.

105 KM - 2H - Kii-Tanabe Station

As his statue next to the ocean reminds us, Morihei Ueshiba (1883-1969), the founder of Aikido, was born here.

145 KM - 3H - Dojo-Ji Station

Only local trains stop here. To get to the Dojo-ji Temple and its three-story pagoda from the station, turn left on to the main road and take a right at the first junction. The temple is at the end of the street.
