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.
