Train journeys give the opportunity to enjoy beautiful landscapes. Japanese railwayswhich traverse some of the most scenic landscapes in the country, give the sightseeing experience a head start by altering train speeds and lighting to help passengers better appreciate the view.

The Japanese Eizan Electric Train regularly passes through a track of 280 Japanese maple trees (known as the Maple Leaf Tunnel) located near a mountain valley north of Kyoto. To ensure commuters can bask in the beauty of the maple trees, the train turns off its interior lights and begins rolling at a slower pace.

The “Maple Leaf Tunnel” offers the best view during the fall season, which lasts from mid-September to early December, when the maple trees are full of red and yellow leaves.

A video of the ‘Maple Leaf Tunnel’ train view is going viral after being posted to Twitter by Taras Grescoe (@grescoe) on Tuesday.

Commenting on the undated video, a Twitter user wrote, “it’s almost like transportation could be a nice part of life that allows us to be present with our community and surroundings, rather than something we let’s grumble as soon as possible 🥹 🥹🥹”.

Another person wrote, “How wonderful! Great appreciation of beauty and nature! It’s such a nice integration to enjoy your surroundings. ❤️❤️💖”
