19-20/11/2018 JR RUMOI LINE
Rumoi line is a local railway route in Rumoi area, Hokkaido. Sadly, the route beyond Rumoi ceased operation in 2014.
Due to depopulation and aging society as well as motorization, many regional railway lines in Japan are now facing severe situations.
Rumoi city is located on the northwest coast of Hokkaido and is famous for fishery (mainly haul of herrings), so you can eat sushi dishes much cheaper than in major cities around Japan.
Note: The last one is not related to Rumoi line, but I met the Sekihoku line limited express “Okhotsk” for Abashiri at Fukagawa station, the terminal of Rumoi line.
