This luxury train, which concept was brought to the world by Industrial designer Ken Kiyoyuki Okuyama ( a designer with projects in Ferrari and Maserati! ), is called Train-Suite Shiki-Shima train and is already operating in few regions of Japan!
Let’s have a look at this machine, that is truly a caress for the amazing people of this world 😉
This train is operated by East Japan Railway Company and is one of the most expensive trains in the world. Its maximum capacity is 34 passengers a trip and the cost of riding it is, approximately, $8413 for a night ( one person ) or half if you travel with someone else!
This 10-car locomotive has many references to the Japanese tradition and culture!
What makes this train so special and of limited edition is the fact that has suites that include fireplaces, a cypress wood bath, a loft and more! All of this just inside certain suits. Just imagine the rest of the wagons!!

Japan’s first Michelin star chef, Katsuhiro Nakamura, has conceived the menus, in which we can see certain dishes that are based around the culture of different places where the “wood-burner” goes!
Shiki-Shima cars are on the vanguard, with a futuristic white look and glass panels providing virtually floor-to-floor panoramas. All of this with the company of music that had been specifically designed for the experience by an award-winning film composer, Naoki Sato
And let’s not forget: the service is, of course, gracious and attentive by the butlers! They are also part of the great experience that is provided by this amazing machine!
Hope you liked our visit inside this futuristic machine!
