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
