Tosa Kuroshio Tetsudo(Railway) Gomen-Nahari Line started operations in July 2002. The line has 20 stops, from Gomen Station in Nankoku City to Nahari Station in Nahari Town. Since trains on the line run mostly on elevated tracks along the southern coast, passengers can enjoy a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. A character figure based on a drawing by comic artist Takashi Yanase, the author of “Anpanman” and a native of Kochi Prefecture, is on display at each station. Such figures produced using motifs reflecting the characteristics of the local community around each station welcome arriving passengers. Some trains operated on this line include unique carriages such as those without windows or walls on both sides to let in fresh air.
