If you ever find yourself in or near Kyoto with your significant other, the Sagano Romantic Train is a lovely way to take the scenic route. Named one of the most romantic cities in the world by Mashable, Kyoto has a lot to offer scenery-wise -- from blooming cherry blossoms to emotion-evoking castle ruins. This train ride for couples allows you to sit back and enjoy the surrounding beauty.

The 25 minute Sagano Romantic Train tour runs year round, giving you breath-taking views of the surrounding foliage. Towards the end of your ride you also get a glimpse of the Akechi Mitsuhide remains and the Kameyama Castle. The five-carriage tourist train also offers souvenir-purchasing opportunities at every stop along the way.
