What is Rokumon?

A fun, new, classic train has been introduced by Shinano Railway, running from Karuizawa, full of nature and culture, through Ueda, the historical city, to Nagano, the home of Zenkoji Temple.
There are communal spaces for everyone to enjoy, and our dining cars give you a chance to have richness of local grown food from the mountains Shinshu.
Running through the crisp highland air, the sightseeing train Rokumon lets you soak up the warm atmosphere of our cars, constructed from local Shinshu timber.
