The train is scheduled for its first departure in spring 2016, and its interiors as well as its exterior layout will be sketched out by Ken Okuyama, a famed industrial designer that has worked with many other famous brands such as Tag Heuer, Pinifarina and Ferrari.

A trip would last two nights and three days, all for a price of $2000. Each car will boast deluxe suites packed with high-end amenities, and guests will also be able to enjoy fantastic dining and lounging experiences.
