A must-see for railway fans!
Miyagawa Ohashi (Miyagawa Bridge) is a 29.1km iron bridge built in the Meiji era that connects Miyagawa Station and Yamada Kamiguchi Station on the Sangu Line.
The bridge has a double warren truss structure (all diagonals are crossed in an X-shape), and it is a famous train view spot where you can take pictures of the Sangu Line where you can see the scenery of the truss bridge and the Miyagawa River.
The Ise North-South Highway is a 23km trunk road that connects National Route 2.5 to the Prefectural Road Toba-Matsuzaka Line, and is a train view spot with a three-dimensional structure where the JR Sangu Line and Kintetsu Yamada Line intersect.
You can see the train from the front near the Kintetsu Under Box, and from below near the viaduct of the JR grade crossing.
It is a main road that connects Prefectural Route 37 and National Route 23, and can be seen from the vicinity of the "Toyohama Ohashi Minami" intersection.
The road has a lot of traffic, so please be careful and shoot from the sidewalk.
From March to April, the rape blossoms near the railway line bloom, and you can take spring-like shots.
Yamada-kamiguchi Station is a station on the JR Sangu Line located in Joban 1-chome, Ise City.Currently, it is a station with one track and one track, but there are remnants of the time when it was two lanes, and there is a roundabout of camphor trees and a city area in front of the station.
Yamada-Kamiguchi Station is mostly served by local trains, but there are times in the early morning and at night when the "Rapid Mie" diesel train with its distinctive orange line stops.
The old highway is about 4 km along the Sangu Kaido, which connects the Geku and Naiku of Ise Jingu. In the past, this road was the only road connecting the Geku and Naiku, so it is a cultural place that was crowded with people visiting Ise.
In the middle of the road is a designated registered tangible cultural property "Asakichi ryokanOrIse City Furuichi Sangu Kaido Museum, where you can feel the charm of the old days of the Ise Kaido while conveying the history of the Furuichi red-light district.Nagamine Shrineand Furuichi Post Office, there is a bridge where you can see trains running on the tracks from above.Please note that there is no parking space nearby.
Shioai Bridge is a bridge in Futami-cho, Ise City, and is a train view spot where you can see trains running over the Isuzu River.
The current railroads in Ise City are the Kintetsu Line and the JR Line, but there used to be a Sangu Railway bound for Geku-mae and a Shinto Train that ran through Ise City.
On the banks of the Isuzu River, there are traces of the tracks of the Shinto Line lined with cherry trees, and there are also several bridge piers of the Shinto Line on the river.
Head to JR Futamiura Station and turn right on the west side of Shioai Bridge.
