Twi­light ex­press mizuzake, JA­PAN

Hong Kong Tatler - - Travel -

Ja­pan’s leg­endary Twi­light Ex­press ran be­tween Osaka and Sap­poro, a 22-hour jour­ney though some of the coun­try’s most beau­ti­ful scenery. The ser­vice was dis­con­tin­ued in 2015, but this sleeper train has re­vived the name for a sim­i­lar jour­ney through western Ja­pan. The typ­i­cally two-to-three-day trip de­parts from Ky­oto or Shi­monoseki, cov­er­ing stun­ning coastal tracks, soar­ing bridges and sweep­ing fields. An art de­coin­spired in­te­rior gives the oth­er­wise clas­sic Ja­panese train a western touch. twi­ligh­t­ex­press-mizukaze.jp/en
