Japan’s ultra-luxurious train hits the tracks for its maiden journey

The Train Suite Shiki-shima is designed to give you the ultimate luxury experience – but you’ll need some loose change to afford it: tickets range from $2,860 (£2,220) to around $10,000 and you can choose between a two- or four-day trip.

The Shiki-shima had its maiden journey on 1 May. The train was built to the plans of designer Ken Kiyoyuki Okuyama and is being advertised as using only the best of materials, many linked to traditional Japanese craftsmanship.
