Eizan Railway Momiji Tunnel Nov. 13-29


Every year at this time the Eizan Railway, which runs through my town up into the mountains to the towns of Kibune and Kurama, has a “Momiji Tunnel” event that coincides with the “Momiji Touro”  illumination event in Kibune.

Beginning at dusk, the trains going to and from Kurama slow down and turn off internal lights when going through a particularly lush section of maple trees, which are illuminated with spotlights for a dramatic effect. it’s difficult to photograph, but easy to remember.

More success can be had taking photos of the beautiful foliage and displays in Kibune.
