Webcams of Railways in Japan

Recommended Posts

Inspired by Bikkuri Bahn's thread for a webcam near Saitama Shintoshin Station, I thought I'd post a few Youtube webcams I've come across that focus on, or at least heavily feature railways across Japan (but only in the Kanto and Kansai areas for now!)

 

Feel free to add your own here - I love watching them so the more, the merrier.

 

Webcams

 

First, by far the most widely viewed webcam I've come across, covering the multitude of lines between Tokyo Station and Shinagawa (inc monorail and Yurikamome), as well as the Shuto Expressway. There's always something happening here:

A great webcam covering all Shinkansen and standard rail lines in and out of Shin-Osaka Station (excluding Osaka Metro of course!). Can't embed this one sadly.

A real close up view of Hankyu Umeda Station, a personal favourite given my affinity for Hankyu 🙂. Jackpot if you get 5-6 movements in picture all at once. Can't embed this one sadly.

A really good stream the multiple lines near Akabane Station. The cool thing about this one is that it uses AI to detect and display what services are on screen at the time. At time of posting, the user wasn't live streaming, but he does so extremely frequently; I will edit once I can get the live stream link:

 

 

EDIT: Looks like this user has stopped live streaming, but still posts very regular videos of whole days worth of recordings: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE5uxiZBrhwFPwzlSfmdWQA/videos

Tohoku, Yamagata, and Akita Shinkansen spotting near Koriyama City

This used to be a live webcam of the eastern approach to Osaka covering the Yamatoji and Osaka Higashi Lines (Kami and Shinkami stations in shot). They don't allow embedding, so a link to the live feed comes first, followed by a beautiful 8 hour recorded view, as it goes from sunset to night. Love it.

Lovely webcam of the Keihan Main Line between Chushojima and Yodo stations. Keihan another favourite of mine, Chushojima a real charming station. Can't embed this one sadly.
