Beautiful New Japanese Train Launched

Sweeping glass windows for scenic views, specially designed nickel silver cutlery, cypress bathtubs. Japan has a new ultra-luxurious sleeper train in service starting today, and man, it’s unbelievable. 

Announced back in 2014, the new “Train Suite Shiki-shima” operated by JR East debuted Monday, and there’s already a crazy demand for it, according to the South China Morning Post, which said a lottery for seats on launch day was oversubscribed 76-fold. You can see why. Look at this thing!
