Odate-Kosaka Rail Bike

Odate-Kosaka Rail Bike

Have fun pedalling along the clackety railroad tracks

Odate-Kosaka Rail Biking involves riding a “rail bike” that you pedal like a bicycle on top of the abandoned tracks of the former Kosaka Railway. It’s a new sensation to feel the clackety vibration beneath your feet as you pedal forward! This is an activity that will hugely delight railroad fans and children alike. 

The round trip journey is about 4 kilometres and takes up to about 30 to 40 minutes. The ascent is great exercise, but coming back is refreshing as you descend in a rush! The moment when you cross a railroad bridge midway is thrilling. You can also enjoy scenery of the grandeur of nature. People who don’t feel confident in their body strength can also breath easy with an electric assist bicycle that supports pedalling.
