What’s about Koshino Shu❇Kura
The “Koshino Shu*Kura” is a train full of Niigata’s charms, where you can enjoy rice grown in Niigata’s magnificent land, delicious local sake made from that rice, and vast scenery. 1 car meal travel products include Niigata sake, light meals using local cuisine, and snacks. This is one of the trains that should be ridden at least once by those who love to drink!
The Koshino Shu*Kura has three different routes, each with a different name: the Echino Shu*Kura runs between Joetsu Myoko Station and Tokamachi Station, the Yuzawa Shu*Kura runs between Joetsu Myoko Station and Echigo Yuzawa Station, and the Ryuto Shu*Kura runs between Joetsu Myoko Station and Niigata Station.
