We are recruiting participants to the Automn Wine Train Journey "Beaujolais Nouveau & Tomioka Silk Mill" !

In November 2015, the city of Tomioka and the city of Bourg-de-Péage in France became friendly cities. On this occasion, the Gunma Japan-France Association held the "Tomioka French Festival in Spring" and the Joshin Electric Railway Co. Ltd. held the "Wine Train" in order to firmly establish regular France-related events.
Then, during Automn 2016, the local train company Joshin Electric Railway Co. Ltd. runs the "Automn Wine Train Journey : Beaujolais Nouveau & Tomioka Silk Mill", together with the first anniversary of the conclusion of the friendly cities partnership and the release of the Beaujolais Nouveau.
