A lounge car inside the luxury sleeper train "Twilight Express Mizukaze" is seen in Osaka's Yodogawa Ward on Feb. 23, 2017. The 10-carriage train -- which contains passenger rooms, a buffet car with an open kitchen, a lounge room with a bar, as well as observation decks -- will start transporting passengers across the country in style from June 17. The dark green appearance of the Twilight Express Mizukaze, to be operated by West Japan Railway Co. (JR West), carries on from the Twilight Express service -- which ran between Osaka and Sapporo but was discontinued in spring 2015. (Mainichi)
