At Kurashiki Station on the Okayama Seto Inland Sea side, depart from Platform 4 , make a large curve to the right and head north.

When you leave Soja Station, you will enter a valley, and between Gokei Station and Niimi Station, you will see a train window overlooking the valley of the Takahashi River along with National Highway No. 180. Of these, the section between Ikura Station and Ishiga Station was the most meandering section of the Takahashi River, and the Hakubi Line was also operated along that flow, but the route was changed due to the double tracking. The old line trace has been diverted to a bicycle path.
Niimi Station was a transportation hub where trains from the Kishin Line and Geibi Line entered, and during the JNR era, the Niimi Locomotive District was also established as a depot where steam locomotives were located. The Geibi Line branches off from Bichu-Kojiro Station, which is two stations away from Niimi Station.
