Design Concept

Based on the concept of “Superior quality with a touch of nostalgia”, the train has a “nostalgic modern” design, which creates an air of refinement and a relaxing, evocative atmosphere.

Exterior

The “MIZUKAZE Green” exterior, inherited from the former Twilight Express, blends into the surrounding landscape, and is accented with a gold emblem and trim. The streamlined head car has an observation deck surrounded by five sweeping rails, and with round headlights, and a driver’s compartment reminiscent of locomotives from a bygone era, it evokes a sense of nostalgia.

Interior

The interior is inspired by Art Deco, a style popular in the 1920s and 30s. The cars contain decorative touches from regions along the routes. The large windows give sweeping views of the spectacular flowing scenery. Relax next to an open window, or step out onto the observation deck to feel the breeze.
