From Unazuki Station, the long and slender train embarks on its journey along the riverside route of the Kurobe River, passing through fragrant forests and vibrant crimson oak groves.

Passengers have the choice between two types of train cars, with or without windows; the latter being classified as first class and commanding a higher fare. However, for those who cherish nature and wish to immerse themselves fully in the atmosphere of the surroundings, the regular windowless seats often prove to be the preferred choice.
