About Seven Stars in Kyushu

Launched in October 2013, Japan’s first luxury sleeper train the Seven Stars in Kyushu, is celebrating its ninth year of operation. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the local people for their hospitality and cooperation in our daily operations over the years.

Just as we were welcoming many guests from overseas, with the goal of promoting Kyushu to the world, the whole world has been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no end to the problems we are facing, such as earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters, as well as environmental pollution.

We still believe in the energy that travel gives to a person’s life, the richness it brings as well as the bonds that are born between people. Today, we continue to consider how the Seven Stars can play a part.

In the autumn of 2022, the Seven Star’s will create a new travel experience offering as its second chapter.

We want to share the history, traditions, and culture of Kyushu, which have been passed down for hundreds of years, and how the thoughts and stories of many people continue to be passed on to future generations.

We hope that we can create the next 100 years together with all of you, and hope that the Seven Star’s will continue to be a star of hope. We will aim to make not only travelers but also the local communities and all of us happy.

Now, please enjoy chapter 2 of this journey to discover the beauty of Kyushu.
