On the way going a meeting in one morning, I came cross this sleeper train called “Cassiopeia” running for very last minuets to of its long journey from Hokkaido Ueno station.
JR “Japanese Railways” are reducing their service on sleeper train, and only a few can be found. It is a wonderful experience to fall a sleep with a sound of rail and see sun rise from the window. If you are to awake during the night, and if you are lucky, you may be able to see stations flying back in your window. Stations in night are covered with dark with no one standing but holding some shining lights.
