The Seven Stars Kyushu, the first luxury sleeper train in Japan, conducts two-day, one-night, or four-day, three-night journeys around the island of Kyushu, Japan’s third largest island.
From the moment guests arrive, they experience traditional Japanese hospitality, starting with the welcome at the Kinsei Lounge, where guests can check in and relax before moving to the platform to watch the stylish train arrive.
Once on board, it is luxury all the way, with the 14 suites an absolute delight of wood and fabrics in a fusion of traditional Japanese and Western styles. The two deluxe suites, one of which is at the very front of the train, have to be seen to be believed.
Demand is so high for this train, you have to apply well in advance.
