TOKYO, March 17, Kyodo

A luxury sleeper train, which is being touted as an example of Japanese-style modernity and aims to have passengers experience the vibrancy and depth of the country's four seasons, has been unveiled to the public.

East Japan Railway Co. will begin operating trips in May on the 10-car Train Suite Shiki-Shima, which was open for public viewing on Thursday.

Tickets will cost up to around $8,000 and take passengers from Ueno Station through parts of Japan, including the northernmost main island of Hokkaido and the Tohoku northeastern region.
