Japan’s diminutive Sweet Train — it comprises just 2 cars — proves that good things come in small packages.
Conceived by the fertile minds of railway company JR Kyushu, the Sweet Train is aptly named: it’s a four-course feast on wheels. Any trip to Kyushu, Japan’s southernmost island, should definitely include it.
The two-hour trip gives ample time for diners to enjoy an exquisite light lunch, followed by four “sweets” courses.
A dedicated, smiling staff fusses over passengers, who enjoy Kyushu’s natural beauty and the train’s gorgeous, naturalistic interior.
And while you’re traveling, be sure to ask about the Sweet Train’s “American Connection.”
