Over the break we had the chance to take an overnight trip. One of the best parts was riding on the Superview Odoriko train (スーパービュー踊り子) from Tokyo to the south. We've taken the train before so this time we made sure to get an early reservation for one of the best seats on the train.
With all of the great features you'd expect this train to cost a lot but it is actually cheaper than taking the shinkansen (bullet train).
If you have time, why not enjoy the journey with a great front row seat?
