JOYFUL TRAINS

Resort View Furusato

Service interval: Nagano to Minami-Otari Stations

  • Resort View Furusato

Timed with the Shinshu Destination Campaign in October 2010, the Resort View Furusato began operation with a new hybrid train model, primarily servicing the Shinonoi and Oito Lines.

With the magnificent mountains, the refreshing streams and lakes, and the clear blue skies, the rustic home villages (furusato) along the route evoke a feeling of nostalgia. This train was created so everyone can appreciate such beauty—whether from the train window, at the station or in a village—and was given its name to reflect its operating area. Take a trip and share your experiences with the people you meet.

Created with ample space and reclining seats that rotate for comfort. The seat spacing is set wide, at 1,200 millimeters, for lots of legroom to stretch.

Passenger cabins

Observation room

Behind the cab is the observation room, where you can sit in chairs or sofas and enjoy the great views that roll out before you from the giant side windows.

Interior TV monitors

Each car is equipped with four TV monitors that stream live from the cab, play sightseeing DVDs, or, on weekends and holidays, show the special on-board events as they unfold.

What is a hybrid system?

The hybrid system used combines a diesel engine and lithium ion batteries to provide the electric motor with power to move. During start-up, the battery power is used, and the diesel engine works to move the generator during acceleration. This combination makes the motor operate. During deceleration, the motor is used as a generator, and the brake energy is converted to electricity and stored back in the batteries.
