Extraordinary Japanese Sleeper Trains With Peaceful Interiors Proving Japan's Lightyears Ahead Of Everyone!


Japan's economy improved highly in the 1960s with the help of the railways. In 1964, the first contemporary high speed rail line opened and several limited express trains and overnight trains began to cross across the country.

The Sunrise Seto and the Sunrise Izumo are the only routinely operating sleeper trains that left.

The Sunrise Izumo and The Sunrise Seto are separated into two 7-car trains at Okayama Station.

At 10 pm, the daily trains depart Tokyo and arrive at Takamatsu at 7:27 am, and to Izumoshi, at 9.58 am.

Travelers can also use this service and save the cost of a night in a hotel.

Japan Rail Pass holders can use the "nobility nobi" without paying extra money.
