The Resort Shirakami Train
Take in incredible views of the Shirakami Sanchi with the Resort Shirakami Train and your Japan Rail Pass!
This train is designed to give you the best possible view of the Shirakami Sanchi, a vast protected forest and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Resort Shirakami is not the most efficient way to go between these two prefectures; rather, it is intended specifically so that you can gaze at the ocean or the rolling mountains.
This train slows down at times when it passing by a view of note, and takes a total of 5 hours to get from one end to the other.
In spring and autumn, the train only runs once a day, so check the schedule before you go!
