Ibusukino Tamatebako

There is a very unique inside and outside train called Ibusukino Tamatebako which runs for Ibusuki. This sightseeing limited express train has been operated with completion of Kyushu Shinkansen Kagoshima route. Tamatebako means Treasure Box in Japanese. It originally comes from one of the famous Japanese folktales named Urashima Taro. What makes this train unique is the configuration. Some seats face window some couches also toward to the window atmosphere seems to be a classroom very kid friendly. When you approach Nishi Oyama Station you will recognize the yellow mailbox. This is the southernmost JR station in the nation. Arrival certificates are sold at the tourist information center. It should be a great souvenir for every one.
