Shiki Shima, the train of the future

The eastern railway company of Japan offers visitors the chance to visit the country as never before.

The Shiki Shima super-tech train offers its passengers a spectacular view of Japan’s rich and natural landscape and, at the same time, an unforgettable travel experience thanks to the design of the suites and the various wagon bays. The train has a living room "komorebi", an excellent dining room, tatami-style suites and a "kizashi" and "ibuki" viewing terrace.

The ’Komorebi’ lounge, a Japanese word that means "sunlight touching the trees in a forest", fully reflects this meaning. In fact this is built to evoke the image of a forest. Meals in Shiki Shima are all traditional and refined dishes of the Japanese Oriental Coast cuisine. The idea was to connect the typical taste of the dishes with the landscapes from which the ingredients of the dishes come. The deluxe tatami-style suites perfectly combine Japanese traditional aesthetics with a futuristic spirit, all equipped with shower and toilet. Finally, the "kizashi / ibuki" panoramic terrace features seating overlooking the panoramic windows so visitors can relax and enjoy the view.
