Toki no Yoake Monogatari (which, in English, translates to 'Tale of the Dawn of an Era') is the new sightseeing train in Japan that will run from Kochi Station to Kubokawa Station, better connecting travel destinations for those visiting the country.
The vehicle boasts two cars and has a capacity of 47 passengers. The interior is designed to be lush and luxurious. The aesthetic ties into cultural themes, adding class and authenticity to the sightseeing train — while the exterior of the train boasts symbology of the sun and the moon, the interior of the second car "has a ceiling painted with stars."
In addition, the train's layout is organized for relaxation. The cars boast "personal seats along counters or tables," allowing passengers to have their own space, chat, as well as enjoy the view.
