Cabin interior

To Top

Green Car

Fabrics with a flower arabesque pattern on deep indigo blue and ancient cherry wood materials are used to create a dignifying space. Genuine cherry wood for armrests and other accents help to complete a unified design. Sophisticated Japanese living space was replicated in the train cabins in order to provide you with a soothing and relaxing ambience.

Reserved seating

The comfortable seats are covered with fabric with a mountain pattern on a deep natane color (slightly greenish yellow) and accented with armrests and tables constructed from antique cherry-style wood. The armrest is retractable, so you can make two seats into a bench to share with your travel companion.

Non-reserved Seat

Seats are covered with checkerboard pattern fabrics in two different base colors: madder red and smoky blue. Cherry-style wood material is used for armrests, tables and gable walls and provides a clean but soft surrounding.
