We've all admired (read: drooled over) a Ferrari design at some point or another, and the gorgeous Ferrari Enzo is certainly no exception. Last week, the Japanese designer best known for his work on that exact car unveiled his latest project — a brand-spanking new luxury sleeper train in Japan.
The Train Suite Shikishima from JR East sleeps a maximum of just 34 people at any one time, and has a lounge car, dining car, two glass-walled observatory cars, and six private suite cars. Each section of the train is custom-designed, with white and wood sculptural walls, geometric paneling, and crisp white table linens lending to a clean, striking aesthetic. As for the suites themselves, you can expect the warm wood paneling, washi paper, and rectangular details traditional to Japanese architecture. According to an article by Curbed, the two-story Deluxe Suite even has it's own onsen bath and heated kotatsu seating area.
Embarking from the private Platform 13.5 at Tokyo's Ueno train station, guests can choose from a variety of travel packages, with a three-night, four-day trip costing around $8,000 per person. Considering the train cost nearly $44.4 million to create, that's a pretty damn good deal for witnessing Japan's rich, beautiful scenery from the comfort of a luxury train. Or at least, it must be; all suites are fully booked for the first six months. For more information on the application process, trip plans, and luxuries that await, check out JR East's website.
