 Super-luxury Train Unveiled
A new super-luxury train has been unveiled by Japanese railway. Kyushu Railway's "Nanatsuboshi" -- Seven Stars -- service has a lounge car with a piano and a bar, top-end dining and 14 private suites.
Each wood-panelled bedroom has plush beds and a desk along with an ensuite bathroom with a shower and toilet, equipped -- of course -- with a heated seat.

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.
