  • From Osaka to Sapporo by Train

    Hi,everyone !
    This is one ride you must take if you ever visit Japan,
    The Twilight Express departs Osaka at 11:00 a.m. and arrives the next
    morning in Sapporo ,well I should say around lunch time.
    what you see in these pics are the salon car ,your regular breakfast
    and the last pic Masako and my son Shota.
    If you are looking for a long peaceful ride with a beautiful sunset as you ride by the sea of Japan this the perfect ride. The train stops along the way but
    for very brief periods so there isn't time to get off and look around.
    If you are traveling on a budget you can bring your food onboard.
    some people compares it to the Oriental Express!
    enjoy the pics

    Looks very nice, but where are all the people? My wife is half Japanese, and we'd love to visit someday.

      Hello,Hansen san!
      Good question, well for about 600. U.S. dollars per person plus meals that
      makes it hard for the average japanese to make this journey this being the cost of a ticket during off season.
      During our trip most of the passengers were retired businessmen, older couples and very few families.which made for a quiet journey all the way to
      Reservations are required for lunch and dinner the cost being of about 120.U.S dollars per head.
      Well in our plans for the coming year we hope to make the journey from
      Sapporo to Osaka to be able to see what we missed on the way up.
      Perhaps then the train will be full of people!
      We live in Kobe and since they built the airport it takes about an hour and forty minutes to fly to Hokkaido.
      But a journey by train still holds a bit of a romantic appeal, don't you agree?
      All aboard!!!!!!!!

        With gas prices up, hopefully we'll see more and more passengers trains here in the U.S. We're only a hundred years or so behind the rest of the world.
