TOURIST TRAIN

観光列車[KANKŌ RESSHA]

Trains for tourists with uniquely decorated exterior and interior. Passengers can enjoy gourmet meals and other out-of-the-ordinary experiences while travelling on the train. Railway companies offer a wide variety of tourist trains with unique features of their own, such as an old-time steam locomotive, trolley train, and luxury train. Every once in a while, Ken sees a tourist train passing his commuter train. Taking a day off from work to get on that train is on his wish list.
