Tenryu Hamanako Railroad 天竜浜名湖鉄道

A route that will take you through an unspoiled Japanese landscape


Commonly known as the Tenhama Line, the Tenryu Hamanako Railroad is a rail line running along the north coast of Lake Hamana from Kakegawa Station (Kakegawa, Shizuoka) to Shinjohara Station (Kosai, Shizuoka) for a total of 67 km and 38 stations. Within Hamamatsu there are 19 stations on the line between Tenryu-Futamata Station and Ona Station. The retro-flavored rail line which retains many vestiges from the time of its 1935 inauguration is still beloved by many and features 36 structures and facilities registered as National Tangible Cultural Properties along the length of its tracks. The charming scenery has been used in many films and television shows.


The trains generally consist of single diesel-powered cars operated by a single person, and most of the stations are unstaffed. Part of the charm is in the famous restaurants and boxed lunches in the station buildings as well as the many sights to see along the railway. Why not go for a leisurely ride on the Tenhama Line and see some of Japan's nostalgic, unspoiled scenery?


Handy tools for enjoying the Tenhama Line!
