Sagano Scenic Railway is a sightseeing train in Kyoto, Japan, that takes visitors on a 7.3-kilometer journey from Arashiyama to Kameoka through the picturesque Hozugawa River Valley. The train ride takes about 25 minutes and offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside, including the Hozugawa River, mountains, and forests.

The Sagano Scenic Railway consists of open-air sightseeing cars that allow passengers to fully immerse themselves in the beautiful scenery. These cars are particularly popular during the autumn season when the surrounding foliage turns vibrant shades of red, yellow, and orange.

In addition to the train ride, visitors can also take part in a river boat ride on the Hozugawa River or explore the Arashiyama area, which is home to a number of popular attractions such as the famous bamboo groves and Tenryu-ji Temple. The Sagano Scenic Railway is a unique and memorable way to experience the natural beauty of Kyoto.
