Hello Kitty themed train debuts in Japan this June. For these next three months, starting this June 30th, a special “Hello Kitty” shinkansen train will be running between the cities of Osaka and Fukuoka in Japan. Colored in bright pink and white, the colors of the character created by Sanrio in 1974, this aerodynamic long nose train will welcome passengers in purple and pink armchairs, with white headrests adorned with Hello Kitty. A car will present a life-size Hello Kitty doll so that fans can take selfies, another car that will not have passenger seats will offer regional specialties, including a selection of products and foods, in order to stimulate the local economy and tourism. This is not the first “original” train circulating in Japan. The train “Anpanman”, named after another Japanese character, rolls in Shikoku, in the south of the country.
