Japan’s shinkansens are cool and fast, but nothing is more special than Genbi. It went into service a few years ago and is now coming to Tokyo this fall.

The Genbi’s outer design is painted black and is complemented with beautiful photos from Nagaoka’s annual fireworks festival. Its layout is amazingly good, and it continues inside its carriages.

Stunning works of photography are displayed within the Genbi’s classy art gallery. Confectioners from Niigata also serve both Japanese and Western-style desserts in the shinkansen’s dining car cafe.

Before, the Genbi only operated between Niigata and Echigo Yuzawa stations, but now, it will have its Tokyo route for two days only. The trip from Tokyo Station to Niigata Station will take nearly two hours because of stops at some stations along the way such as Ueno, Omiya, and Nagaoka.

On October 5 and 6, the Genbi will proudly begin its Tokyo course. It is scheduled to leave Niigata at 6:17 a.m. and will be arriving in Tokyo at 8:20 a.m., where it will make a U-turn and head back at 8:32 a.m. for a 10:30 a.m. arrival in Niigata.
