A trip of Tadami Line with wonderful colored leaves

Japanese Version

Hi, this is Fe@NJ,  who has passed Second Grade of Timetable Test in Japan.

How time flies and it is the final stop of “More Abundant Life by Railway Trip” Series, of six accounts.

This theme is a day trip of Tadami Line between Koide and Tadami, taking approximately one hour and twenty minutes on each of go and return, enjoying autumn with very beautiful leaves.

Tadami Line is a typical local line of JR East which ties Koide in Niigata Prefecture and Aidu-wakamatsu in Fukushima Prefecture, to east and west.

It is the long interruption in its midsection between Tadami and Aizu-kawaguchi by flood damage in 2011.

As of today, October 24, 2017, only three rounds of the local train are daily serviced between Koide and Tadami, throughout, while one round of the so-called Joyful Train is seasonally and limitedly operated.  Therefore, when making a travel plan, please note the timetable carefully.

Tadami Line seems deserted, nevertheless, you should have the real pleasure of colored leaves along the line.
