Steampunk-esque Seven Stars train is for serious ballers only

•, Terry Chao
The elegant locomotive has premium digs like a 226-square-foot room in the Deluxe Suite A that features a glorious five-foot panoramic window to allow a full view of Japan's southern island of Kyushu from the back side of the train. The shiny, steampunk-esque train sports a glossy purple-gold exterior and clearly puts comfort over speed, but we're not complaining.

Each train cabin is decked out in intricate wood decor that is described as a "fusion of Western and Japanese design" with rounded, high paneled ceilings that give each room a homey feel, replete with end tables sporting retro-looking lamps, loveseats and plenty of floral pillows. On either side of the bedroom are modest twin-size beds with a window so you can enjoy the passing view as you pass out from all the pampering.

Passengers can unwind in the Seven Star's lounge car with live music, or indulge in seasonal Kyushu delicacies in its cushy dining car. The train also features shoji paper screens for privacy.
