Tadami Line view in winter, Mishima Town, Fukushima, Feb. 15, 2015 (冬の只見線、第一鉄橋 2015年2月15日)

Today I visited a famous observatory for Tadami Railway Line near Roadside Station Ozekaido Mishimajuku in Mishima Town. There are really many viewing spots along the Tadami Line and this place is one of them.

I walked from JR Aizumiyashita Station of Tadami Line to the site as shown in the map below. It was about 2.5km walk in 40 minutes one way. A young man from Tokyo for the same purpose happened to join me together toward the place. (The map can be scaled up and down by clicking it.)

Now, Miyashita Onsen (Eikoukan Inn) in the map is also a very good hot spring in Mishima Town. It is only several minutes' walk from Aizumiyashita Station.

【2013年6月15日】 JR 只見線、そして 三島町 の 宮下温泉 へ( June 15, 2013: JR Tadami Line and Miyashita Onsen of Mishima Town, Fukushima Pref. )

本日は、南会津町 の 南郷 を出発し、只見町 を経由して、国道252号 で 只見川 に沿って進み、三島町 の 宮下温泉 に入る。午後から雨の予報のため、朝8時過ぎに出発し、約80kmを三島町まで直行した。正午過ぎに着き、雨を免れた。
Today I left Nango district of Minamiaizu Town and via Tadami Town I pedaled along Tadami River on National Route 252 and finally arrived at Miyashita Onsen of Mishima Town. Since weather forecast said it would start raining in the afternoon, I started at eight in the morning and went direct to Mishima Town without stop. I arrived just after noon thus before rain started.

The actual route was shown in the map below. (The route and altitude data were from GPS log data. The details of the map can be seen by clicking the map.)

Mishima Town is used to be covered with heavy snow in winter and it has JR Aizumiyashita Station as shown in the pictures above and also Miyashita Onsen near the center of the town. I just met with a passenger train bound for Aizukawaguchi.

JR 只見線 は、2年前の豪雨被害で、鉄橋など複数個所が寸断され、会津川口駅 と 只見駅 の間が、バス代行運転である。駅員に聞くと、列車の再開は、復旧工事がまだ始まっておらず、現在まだ見通しがたっていない。
JR Tadami Line had been destroyed in some places such as railroad bridges by the heavy rain disaster two years ago. Shuttle bus service replaced the train service between Aizukawaguchi and Tadami stations. A station officer said that restoration work had not yet been started thus no one could tell when the train service would resume.
