The Twilight Express Mizukaze
The Twilight Express Mizukaze is one of the three new luxury trains that will be launched by japanese railway companies in 2017.

It is a ten coach train with two special observation cars with balconies in the front and at the back.

Passenger cars will come in three classes : Suite, Twin and single with a maximum capacity of 30 people.

The Mizukaze Concept
The train was designed by architect and interior designer Kazuya Ura and industrial designer Tetsuo Fukuka. You will discover a modern athmosphere with a touch of nostalgia.

In the past, the French cuisine was offered on the Twilight Express that ran between Osaka and Sapporo. In the Twilight Express Mizukaze seven "Masters of Japanese cuisine" will oversee the breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The hybrid-diesel-powered and moto-driven cars allow the train to run even where there are no onverhead wires.
