Kamishihorocho Rail Museum
Located in Kamishihoro Town's Gensenkyo area, this museum was built at the site of the former Japan National Railways Nukabira Station on the JNR Shihoro Line. The JNR Shihoro Line was an essential method of transport for both the passengers and the cargos including woods that supported its regional industries. As times had changed, the line became no longer profitable, and was discontinued in 1987. The Kamishihoro Town Railway Museum preserves the history of the JNR Shihoro line for future generations. The old-fashioned rail bridges, such as the Taushubetsu stone arch bridge, are also popular spots from the museum, especially among railway enthusiasts, offering a truly impressive scene.
