The distinctive green JR train has natural, wooden interiors, a good on-board food menu and is a leisurely way to enjoy the countryside of Kyushu, admiring the passing scenery from the high-positioned seats.

The train, which has a top speed of 120kph, travels from Hakata (Fukuoka) to Beppu in 3 hours and 15 minutes via Futsukaichi, Tosu, Kurume, Hita, Amagase, Bungomori, Yufuin and Oita.
