The train travels around the rural southern island of Kyushu, with a four-day, three-night package costing up to 1.13 million yen ($11,000) per couple.

The company's website boasts of a "refined and dignified" design that is a "fusion of Japanese and Western and of new and old".

The train goes into service in October this year, but is already fully booked until June 2014.
