Royal Express and the legendary coastland

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, travel themed 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.
