Their itinerary was:

Day 1 :

  Kyoto Station - Nishi Maiduru Station

AKAMATSU

  Nishi Maizuru Station - Amanohashidate

Amanohashidate sightseeing
  - Amanohashidate View Land (scenic view point)
  - Chionji Temple

Centrale Hotel Kyotango (accommodation and dinner)
  - Onsen Spa
  - Crab Dinner
 

Day 2 :

Ine sightseeing
  - Ine bay cruise by fishing boat taxi

One of highlights of Day 1 is AKAMATSU train ride.
AKAMATSU is one of sightseeing trains of Kyoto Tango Railway, which runs between Nishimaizuru and Amanohashidate. 
AKAMATSU sightseeing train is reservation required.
URL for reservation is : https://trains.willer.co.jp/matsu/train/  (Japanese only)

Climax of AKAMATSU ride is "crossing the iron bridge over Yuragawa river."
The bridge is located close to the mouth of a river. 





After the bridge, AKAMATSU runs along with the coast line and mountains.






Super enjoyable and relaxing ride lasts about 40-50 min (depends on train schedule).    If you need more information, contact Kyoto Tango Railway
