Nature and beauty in rural Shizuoka

Information about the quiet and beautiful Minami-Alps Aputo Line.

This train line runs in Shizuoka Prefecture, between Senzu Station and Ikawa Station.

Originally built in the first half of the 20th century to transport commercial goods and building supplies, this curving, winding rail line meanders its way through mountains and lakes, even crossing straight across one lake with its Okuoikojo Station.

Just a 10-minute walk from the first station on the Aputo line, Senzu, is Senzu Onsen, with its healing outdoor baths, as well as the Oikawa River, a popular spot for summertime swimming.
