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 supported both passenger and freight trains, with major cargo including wood, and was an essential transport method for the region and its industries. As times changed, the line was eventually no longer profitable, and was discontinued in 1987. The Kamishihoro Town Railway Museum preserves the history of the JNR Shihoro line for future generations. As a base point for touring the area's old-fashioned rail bridges, such as the Taushubetsu stone arch bridge -- a truly impressive scene, even if you're not a railway enthusiast.
