Experience the Hitoyoshi/Kuma region like the wild birds that visit the majestic mountains and crystal clear streams.

Experience the Hitoyoshi/Kuma region like the wild birds that visit the majestic mountains and crystal clear streams.

The Hitoyoshi Basin is surrounded on all four sides by towering mountains. Once upon a time, the people of this area suffered extreme hardship forging routes to allow ships passage through Kuma River. This train is named after the wild birds, the kingfisher and crested kingfisher, that most likely travelled freely over the train tracks, even in a time when the passage of people was challenging.
