Rokujurigoe Road along Lake Tagokura, Oct. 27, 2015 (六十里越 雪わり街道 と 只見線 2015年10月27日)

Today I pedaled along Rokujurigoe Route which connects Fukushima Pref. and Niigata Pref. This is a mountain road along Lake Tagokura and a part of it goes along JR Tadami Line. Many snow sheds and tunnels are on the way. The road is closed in winter.

In the morning before 9am, Lake Tagokura was covered with heavy fog. But after 9am the fog disappeared quickly as shown in the picture above.

On the border, there was a long Rokujurigoe Tunnel to Niigata Pref. At the exit of the tunnel there were two sign boards one for Niigata and another for Fukushima as shown above

(JR Tadami Line, Lake Tagokura, autumn leaves, Oct. 27, 2015, JR只見線、田子倉湖、紅葉、2015/10/27)
After the tunnel, I pedaled for a while through Uonuma City, Niigata Pref. and returned back. On the way back, I met with Tadami Line train going through autumn colors beside Lake Tagokura as shown above. The viewpoint is near an old JR Tagokura Station which is no more in use.

You can trace the route and altitude in the map below. (Up: 5.6%, gained altitude: 1190m)
