Boso Crossing Line (Kominato Railway and Isumi Railway)
This is a local railway that cuts across Chiba Prefecture. In the spring, rape blossoms and cherry blossoms are in bloom, and a pastoral landscape spreads out before your eyes. Along the tracks of the Kominato Railway, there’s a valley called “Yoro Keikoku,” and in the fall, the autumn leaves color it beautifully. At Kazusa-Nakano Station, the Kominato Railway connects to the Isumi Railway, and because the view of the valley from this train’s windows is reminiscent of Moomin Valley, the Isumi Railway is also called the “Moomin Train.”
