The eight-car train, whose white body is decorated with images of pink ribbons to mimic the look of the popular character of Sanrio Co., operates one round-trip between Hakata and Shin-Osaka a day.

When the specially-designed train arrived at Hakata Station in Fukuoka Prefecture, passengers and others welcomed it.

Kayo Honda, 33, came to see the high-speed train with her 4-year-old son from neighboring Kumamoto Prefecture. “It is cute. I want to board it next time,” she said.
