Kuromatsu train trip (Part 1)

June 26, 2014

Yesterday, we went with for a study and training trip to Tango region of Kyoto Prefecture.

Taking a bus full of travel agents and representatives of Kyoto Tourist Industry Cooperative, we arrived to the Nishi-Maizuru train station.. to meet this cool guy, Kuromatsu :

On May 25th 2014, Kuromatsu (Black Pine in Japanese) joined his 2 older brothers, Akamatsu (Red Pine) and Aomatsu (Blue Pine), offering an opportunity to enjoy one or three courses (lunch, sweets or sake) while riding it.

As Akamatsu train was also at the station, I took a few photos of it too :

The inside atmosphere is nice, I’d like to ride it one day too ^^

And here is a common train of Kitakinki Tango Railway Company :
