Enjoy a luxurious journey on the Seven Stars to discover the beauty of KyushuRead more about Seven Stars
Seven Stars is the first luxury sleeper train in Japan. It made its inaugural run in Oct 2013. Seven Stars is the creation of JR Kyushu Chairman Koji Karaike and designer Eiji Mitooka. For over twenty years Karaike had dreamed of making this “Cruise Train” a reality. The result is a collaboration of designer Mitooka and local artisans, who have beautifully furnished the train with their masterpieces. Discover the island of Kyushu on Seven Stars, and look forward to an experience only possible in Kyushu.
On the Seven Stars, passengers can enjoy the beautiful Kyushu scenery as it flows by their windows. The courses on the Seven Stars are highlights of the best that Kyushu has to offer. The train does not just push through the journey. At certain points passengers will alight from the train to participate in excursions, making this train a new kind of travel experience. We are sure that throughout the journey there will be scenery and experiences that could only possibly be encountered on the Seven Stars.
