Ex­plor­ing Ja­pan and its land­scapes

World Travel Magazine - - Just In - CHRIS­TINE LEE

The thrill is here - be­yond ex­changes and gen­er­a­tions. The call to move by rail and see the world. Ex­pe­ri­ence the plea­sure of a har­mo­nious jour­ney to some­thing new yet nos­tal­gic. The Izu Penin­sula sparkles, stir­ring your imag­i­na­tion. The drama un­folds where a one-time South Sea is­land col­lided with Hon­shu form­ing Mt. Fiji - a land blessed with beau­ti­ful land­scapes where hot springs beckon. Peo­ple from all over the world are called here for the mys­ti­cal and trans­for­ma­tional jour­ney only found in the wilds of this le­gendary coast­land.

The func­tional beauty of the Royal Ex­press is a fun, yet so­phis­ti­cated mar­riage of tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als, crafts­man­ship and cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy. Seats are sold in vary­ing plans and classes - the ul­ti­mate be­ing the Plat­inum Class. The vi­o­lin­ist Jun-ei Oh­sako com­posed the theme song of The Royal Ex­press, which en­hances the jour­ney and up­lifts the spirit, ex­pand­ing the idea of a cruise con­cert with an ear to pro­duc­ing melo­di­ous, trav­elthemed works. This land where Mt. Fuji is the high­est point and Su­ruga Bay is the deep­est, forms a vi­brant cli­mate where a va­ri­ety of in­gre­di­ents are avail­able, mak­ing world-class din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences pos­si­ble all year round.
