Japanese trains, Ibusuki no Tamatebako

One of the amazing trains of JR Kyushu is the limited express Ibusuki no Tamatebako, running 3 times a day between Kagoshima-Chūō and Ibusuki.

Originally a regular KiHa 47 type, the train has the interior modified by the industrial designer Eiji Mitooka. Photographed here is the car nr.1, featuring swivel chairs on the side facing the ocean and a small library, all made of teak wood.
