The Iroha operates on the Nikko Line with a one-car 205-series train built to provide sightseers a more pleasant time when traveling. The nickname "Iroha" is taken from the Iroha-zaka Winding Roads and the general term iroha, which refers to the ABCs. The Nikko Line is the start of an adventure in Nikko, represented by the interior decorations which evoke many of Nikko's charms.
