Train suite shiki-shima, JA­PAN

Hong Kong Tatler - - Travel -

This lux­u­ri­ous suite-only sleeper train has cre­ated a lot of buzz since its maiden ride just a cou­ple of months ago. De­signed by Ken Okuyama, best known for his work with Fer­rari, Porsche and Maserati—the train’s 17 lav­ish suites show­cases his trade­mark fu­tur­is­tic lines in abun­dance, equipped with large fold-back beds and baths made from Ja­panese cy­press wood. The train also en­tails a din­ing room, two ob­ser­va­tory cars and a lounge de­signed to evoke a “quiet for­est.” The on­board menu re­flects the train’s eastern Ja­panese route, and is su­per­vised by Kat­suhiro Naka­mura, Ja­pan’s first chef ever to re­ceive a Miche­lin star.
