Travel back in time in a 115 year-old wooden railway carriage
This beautiful second-class carriage with red velvet seats, glowing wooden frames, and classical touches is housed in the newly built "Uemachi Station" in Sakawa.
After the train was retired in 1933, people in the town of Sakawa used it for 35 years as a tiny reading room next Sakawa Bunko Kosha (the first private library in Kochi)????
After a brief stint back at the factory, this beloved local icon is back, ready to act as a backdrop to your travel photos, with its magical atmosphere of the Japan of 100 years ago????✨
While Uemachi Station is not an actual train station, it does house a tourism information office, so it is the perfect place to start your journey in Sakawa????
