The steam locomotive, “SL Paleo Express”,

of Chichibu Railway is closest to Tokyo

 

The SL Paleo Express is a steam locomotive that runs from Kumagaya City to Chichibu City in Saitama Prefecture.
With this unchanged retro train, you can enjoy the magnificence of nature through the peaceful countryside, the Arakawa River, and the Chichibu mountains.
The echoing sounds of the whistle at the time of departure is very impressive.
The Shinkansen from Tokyo stops at Kumagaya Station and only costs 510 yen to ride

(free seating and passenger ticket is separate).
