Riding The JR Kyushu A-Train
One of the many highlights during our Kyushu trip last month was riding the JR Kyushu Limited Express A-Train.
The train is named after a famous jazz tune, the theme behind this train was "the Southern European culture prevalent in Amakusa in 16th century. "
The interior is constructed using dark tone woods and stained glass and giving a feeling as if we are in a movie scene.
The train ride is covered by JR Pass, JR Kyushu Rail Pass, JR Kyushu Northern Area Pass and JR Kyushu Southern Area Pass.
For our trip, we bought the 5-days JR Kyushu Northern Area Pass for 10,000 yen each and certainly had fun riding on JR Kyushu shinkansen (bullet trains) and also novelty trains like the A-Train.
Here's a video about the ride.
