Stoves Train and Lunch Boxes
Tsugaru Railway is a railway company that connects Goshogawara Station to Tsugaru-Nakasato Station in Aomori Prefecture with its 20.7 km of railways. It is the northernmost public railway in Japan. The railway operation stopped during World War II due to material shortage but stove trains have been circulating again since 1947. The stove train in operation today is the 4th generation of passenger trains. To get on board, travelers need to buy a regular railway ticket but also a stove train ticket at 400 yen. This train operates only in winter and allows travelers to enjoy the scenery covered with snow from the windows in a warm environment, thanks to the potbelly stoves that add a nostalgic touch to the travel.
