The Tsugaru Railway is the northernmost private railway in Japan, and has been running since 1930. The track is a 20.7-km line and about a 45-minute train ride between Tsugaru-Goshogawara Station and Tsugaru-Nakasato Station. The railway runs seasonally themed trains. Summer furin trains feature Tsugaru Kanayama pottery furin (wind bells) with paper strips inscribed with haiku, creating a cool atmosphere. Fall suzumushi trains feature the beautiful sound of caged suzumushi (bell crickets). Winter stove trains run with old-type cars, featuring a daruma (old-fashioned potbelly) stove. Tsugaru Peninsula Sightseeing Attendants ride the train with passengers to offer Tsugaru Peninsula sightseeing information in the Tsugaru dialect, taking it easy so as to be understandable for passengers.
