Enjoy the magnificent sea of Sanriku: The "third sector" railroad bridging the Sanriku coast

The Sanriku Railway Rias Line is the longest third-sector railroad line in Japan. It was created as a result of the restoration of the JR Yamada Line between Miyako and Kamaishi which was damaged in the Great East Japan Earthquake, along with a change of management. In addition to offering a spectacular view of the Sanriku coast from the train windows, the line operates special trains, including retro trains, tatami trains, kotatsu (heated table) trains, and trains where passengers can learn about the Tohoku earthquake of 2011.
