The Paleo Express is the closest running steam train to Tokyo and is accessible by taking the bullet train from Tokyo Station to Kumagaya Station. Upon boarding, you will be seated in traditional 4-seater passenger cars with big viewing windows perfect for enjoying the beautiful landscapes as you pass by them en route to your destination.

In a world of silent, innovative trains, you can experience an old-school way of train travel as you feel the raw power of the train rumbling down the tracks, smell the familiar scent of smoke from the engines and hear the unmistakable train whistle. All this while taking a comfortable ride along breathtaking scenery, a truly relaxing journey away from the bustling metro.
