RELAX AND ENJOY A LUXURIOUS TRIP THROUGH THE BREATHTAKING SEASONAL BEAUTY OF EASTERN JAPAN.
In the spring of 2017, Japan is getting a new luxury train. And Ferrari designer Ken Okuyama is the one lending aesthetic vision to it.
Called “Cruise Train”, Japan’s newest offering-to-be is a 34-passengers-only champagne gold luxury-on-electricity, which mind you, will do just as well on non-electric rails. For that, it has an adaptable EDC system to thank.
The first floor will have two beds while the second floor will be covered with Japanese-style tatami mats, perhaps, for added effect. Each of rooms can accommodate up to two guests. Besides the deluxe suites, five cars have been designated to house suites as well.
