Japan’s Luxury Train Costs $10,000 One Way

Japanese railway company JR East has launched a new luxury sleeper train named Shiki-Shima, whose name means “Island of Four Seasons.” The ultra-luxurious train carries up to 34 passengers a time from Tokyo across the northern Tohoku region as well as the northernmost island Hokkaido, for trips of between one and three nights’ duration. It costs $10,000 one way and is already sold out until March 2018.

Recently, Japan’s Shiki-Shima luxury train made its maiden journey. It’s truly opulence rolling on tracks.

Traveling through Tohoku and Hokkaido, a ride in these panoramic suites costs $10,000 one way, but they are every bit of extravagance dipped in comfort.
