The Resort 21 Kurofune Train
From Atami to Shimoda
The Resort 21 Kurofune is a series of special trains to take you to the Izu area. The Black Ship Train is one of those. Buy your Japan Rail Pass today!
This train is called the "Kurofune" train as the exterior of the cars is totally black like the American black ships arriving in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868).
On one side, it runs right along the sea! On the opposite side, you can see the nature of Japan, the beautiful contrast between mountains and verdant green.
If you’re planning on taking this special express, be aware that you will need to reserve a seat.
The museum is open from 9:30 to 16:30 daily except Thursdays. 1600 yen for adults, 800 for students, free for children 14 and under.
There’s even a sake spot that’s been around since the Meiji Era!
