CONCEPT- A place where you can find happiness during your trip

HOKUTOSEI, a limited express sleeping car train, was loved by many people, but disappeared due to the discontinuation of the service. With the cooperation of East Japan Railway Company and JR East Urban Development Corporation, we have been able to come up with the idea of reviving “HOKUTOSEI” as accommodation.We will support your trip with the new start of our train hostel, HOKUTOSEI, as a base of the trip for Eastern Japan.

HOSTEL-Train Hostel HOKUTOSEI is simple and affordable accommodation with the image of HOKUTOSEI, a limited express sleeping car train.

Design is created by OpenA which has established a reputation on renovation of public facilities.
There are dormitory type rooms (shared) and private rooms, which adopted the actual parts of sleeping car to furnish and decorate the interior in order to create a particular atmosphere in the limited space.
