Akita Nairiku Jūkan Railway Akita Nairiku Line
The Akita Nairiku Line (秋田内陸線 Akita Nairiku-sen ) is a Japanese railway line in Akita Prefecture, between Takanosu, Kitaakita and Kakunodate, Senboku. This is the only railway line operated by the Akita Nairiku Jūkan Railway (秋田内陸縦貫鉄道 Akita Nairiku Jūkan Tetsudō , "Akita Inland Longitudinal Railway"). The third sector company took over two former Japanese National Railways lines in 1986, and a newly built line linked the two in 1989. Since the line serves sparsely populated areas, it faces severe business challenges.
