Previous Overnight service from Osaka to Sapporo

The Twilight Express train was a very famous overnight train between Osaka and Sapporo.

There were a wide variety of accommodations on the Twilight Express. The nicest was the Suite, equipped like a nice hotel room, with a TV, alarm clock, shower and toilet, a fridge, towels, and beverages.

The Royal accommodation option was similar, but did not include the stunning panoramic views that the Suites offer. Twin and Single Twin rooms included beds but no in-room bathrooms or other amenities.

Berths had beds but were shared with three other people. The "nobinobi" carpeted floor with futon option was the cheapest accommodation, which didn't require extra fees if you had a Japan Rail Pass.
