Japan’s special Imperial train
Emperor Akihito and King Juan Carlos of Spain got to travel to the Tsukuba Space Center yesterday using the Japan’s special Imperial train:
It marked the first official use of this particular Imperial train, which was completed by JR in 2007. Only one car of the express train was exclusively built for the Imperial family’s use, while 5 other luxury cars attached are occasionally used by JR for special events.
