First of all, the feature photo of this article is a composed photo of Seto Bridge and the Anpanman Torokko Train for illustration purpose. Yet these two photos are original image of the Seto Bridge and the train.
While the Yosan Anpanman Train 8000 Series look the coolest both outside and inside, this Seto Bridge Anpanman Train is probably the best route in terms of scenery. Seto Inland Sea is the largest inland sea in Japan, covering a wide area with stunning view and more than 3,000 small islands. This Seto Bridge line runs between Okayama in West Japan and Takamatsu/Kotohira in Shikoku Japan. Depending where you start and finish, the train ride can be within 1 hour, long enough to it a fun excursion for children yet short enough for the parents. Perfect!
This Seto Bridge Line Anpanman Train only runs at the weekend between March and middle of July, and stops in the winter (December to February). But it will operate everyday between July 21 and August 31, 2018! Please check out the train schedule for details (Japanese only) and remember to make reservation in advance.
This is a “Green” car, which is a higher level than reserved seat in regular JR trains. For All Shikoku Rail Pass holders, the section between Okayama and Kojima is not included. So you will have to pay for the fare difference plus the supplementary price for the Green car. Children under 6 years old and do not occupy any seats can ride with the parent for free.
