Try this moving monotone magical treasure box. White smoke billows when you board!

This train operates between Kagoshima-chuo and Ibusuki and was designed based on the folk tale of the Dragon's Palace of the Satsuma Peninsula. In addition to the bold monotone exterior and comfortable sofas inside, boarding through the white smoke mimics Urashima Taro's treasure box folk tale and is a popular attraction.
