The Summer Breezes of Southern Hokkaido
We travel south from Sapporo on the Hakodate Line, one of Japan's earliest rail lines, to visit a museum that preserves railroad history and a distillery known around the globe for its whisky. Rail fans will not want to miss a rare experience at one of its remote stations. At Oshamambe, customers enjoy crab bento while savoring the joy of travel, without boarding a train. Leisurely journey through an area where new winds will blow when the Shinkansen starts operations in the future.
