Nozomi bullet trains of the Tokaido Shinkansen are now available for charter, according to Shin Kaneko, the president of the Central Japan Railway Company (JR Tokai).
Kaneko made the announcement at a regular press conference on December 15. The company is now offering personalized "chartered car packages" for special events, such as graduation trips or employee training trips.
Nozomi means "hope" or "wish" in Japanese. It is also the name of Japan's fastest bullet train, which runs between Tokyo and Kyushu.
JR's new move aims to stimulate demand for in-person events, which had declined since the COVID-19 pandemic. It even offers various additional services such as the use of LCD monitors and speakers.
"I want to raise the value of the entire trip by letting our customers start their events on the train even before they arrive at their destination," said Kaneko.
