THE ORIGINS OF SEVEN STARS IN KYUSHU

This luxury train, which made its first run in October 2013, gets its name from several different aspects of Kyushu. Although its name actually means “nine states,” Kyushu has seven prefectures: Fukuoka, Saga, Nagasaki, Oita, Miyazaki, Kumamoto, and Kagoshima.

The seven stars are also meant to represent the 7 most important aspects of a visit to Kyushu: hot springs, nature, power spots, history & culture, food, the friendliness of its people, and its train system.

Travel plan

Seven Stars in Kyushu has two different travel options. Its longer, 4 days/3 nights trip makes a large circuit around all of Kyushu, includings its most famous hot springs, volcanoes, and urban areas. The 2 days/1 night trip focuses on the northern half of Kyushu, starting in Fukuoka and passing by Oita, Nagasaki, and Mt. Aso. Each of these run weekly, in “sessions” of 2 to 4 months.

Designs and Facilities

The train is designed to be the height of luxury travel: to hark back to a time of high class travel and also to push train travel ever forwards. Its suites have a retro feel but offer large windows that offer an expansive view of the countryside.

This train was designed by Kiyoyuki Okuyama, intended to look like an upscale hotel, with ten cars decorated in a champagne gold color.

tl also include a restaurant dining car, and the rear lounge car is partially made of glass for spectacular views of the Japanese landscape.


This new luxury train is able to accommodate up to 34 passengers.

The higher end accommodations is located in a deluxe suite car, with two rooms.

One of the two rooms have two stories, the second floor a tatami sitting room with a picture window to view the passing scenery.

Train’s purpose

Part of the train’s purpose is to “introduce Kyushu to the world,” according to the Seven Stars company, because Japan’s third largest island is not a first-timer’s destination.

Kyushu is the most southwesterly main island in the chain, which means it is the warmest and most tropically lush, with more than its fair share of volcanoes and spas.

So within a few hours of setting off from capital Fukuoka on our four-day itinerary, we’ve already got into hot water — or more specifically, our feet have, into a mineral water footspa on the station platform at Yufuin, in a valley filled with plumes of rising steam.

The journey here has been up through hill country, ambushing rivers, clattering across iron bridges, scything through rice terracing spiced with hurricane lilies — crimson wildflowers that look like splashes of blood amongst the yellowing harvest.
