SL Fuyu-no-Shitsugen Train

A winter wonderland running through Kushiro Marshlands National Park

The SL Fuyu-no-Shitsugen Train is a popular winter event in Kushiro, running powerfully through the silvery white Kushiro Shitsugen.

This special train runs between Kushiro Station and Shibecha Station on the JR Senmo Line between January and March. The interior of the train is thoroughly "authentic retro," with heavy varnished walls and wooden-framed chairs.

From the windows of the train, passengers can enjoy a panoramic view of Kushiro Shitsugen, where they can sometimes see red-crowned cranes soaring over the snowy fields and wild animals such as Ezo sika deer. This quaint SL Fuyu-no-Shitsugen Train attracts many railroad fans and tourists from all over Japan every year.
