Shiman Torocco Trolley
Shiman Torocco Trolley

Running between Uwajima Station in Aichi Prefecture and Kubokawa Station in Kochi Prefecture, this is an original trolley train made from converted freight cars. The train is characterized by its golden yellow color, which reflects the beauty of the landscape. From its open-style train car you’ll be able to look directly onto the Shimanto and Hiromi Rivers, said to be the last truly clean-flowing rivers in Japan.
