It is an art deco-style train that is red with gold and black patterns, a train unique to sightseeing trains.

The sightseeing train adjacent to the JR Saga-Arashiyama Station runs from Saga Station to Kameoka Station, a distance of 7.3 km (one-way), at a speed of about 25 minutes, which is about the speed of a slightly fast bicycle.

Almost the entire area along the Hozu River offers a beautiful view of the four seasons.

In the spring season, visitors can see 700 cherry blossom trees planted along the route, and in the fall, it is a popular foliage viewing spot where visitors can enjoy the autumn leaves illuminated with lights.

JR Saga-Arashiyama Station is also home to Diorama Kyoto JAPAN, one of the largest miniature railroad in Japan.

The miniature train runs through the finely crafted historical sites and cityscapes of Kyoto.
