Although not an anime character per say, there’s one special train in the Kansai
as the panda train. From Osaka, this train runs through Wakayama, a prefecture known for its beaches, hot springs, and spiritual mountains. You can go to Shirahama and even Shingu
on this train, which features four special “panda seats”-- although rumor has it these panda heads peaking out over the seats can sometimes feel a little unsettling.
This train is accessible with a Japan Rail Pass.
