This is Alam of Yamato Agency.
Last weekend I went to Wake for cycling. As I am not a passionate cyclist so it was tremendous experience for me. And also the longest cycling of my life in a day. So we reached Wake station at 9.44 AM. There is a cycle rental just in front of the station. And it's only 300 yen per cycle until 3 PM.
Then we started following the route of the old Katakami Railway.
I heard that this railway was in operation from 1919 to 1991. And it was very important to transport minerals that are found in this area to the port. Then in 2003 it was reopened as a cycling road.
The weather was in favour so we enjoyed the beauty of nature throughout the journey.
It took almost 2.5 hours to Reach Yanahara 片上鉄道保存会. It's almost 34 Km.
There is Yanaharakozan Museum with many types of stones on display.
It was worth cycling for almost 50 km through the scenic beauty of rural Japan.
See you next time.
