October 19th, 2013
If you find yourself in Japan sometime, you might want to check out the Seven Stars train. It will spoil you from other trains, bullet or otherwise, because this train is elegant style on the outside with a creamy luxury inside.
The train’s is a spacious 226-square meter room with a five-foot panoramic window that gives you a gorgeous view of Kyushu from the back of the train. The cabins all have intricate wood decorations and high paneled ceilings. It is basically the best train you could ever sleep on. For a four-day/three-night trip, this penthouse on wheels goes for an “introductory rate” of $5,750 per person per night, double occupancy. The price is expected to go up to $7,835 per person starting next July.
There is also a lounge car where passengers can unwind and socialize, while talking about how much money they spent. The train has been open since October 15th, and is so popular that it is booked through through June of next year. All aboard!
