Sunrise Express Izumo & Seto (寝台特急サンライズ出雲瀬戸号) is Japan’s only overnight sleeper train which runs everyday (日本で唯一の毎日運行の夜行列車). Today, I book the cheapest private room called “Solo” (最安の個室 B寝台個室ソロ) from Tokyo Station to Izumoshi Station (東京駅から出雲市駅). It’s a 950km (590 miles) trip that takes about 12 hours. When booking a Solo room, even if you are a foreign tourist with a JR pass, you will need to go to the ticket office and pay an additional sleeper private room fee in advance. In addition, I recommend you reserve a seat on the right side. This is because you can see other trains and a nice view of Lake Shinji. When you arrive in Izumo, it’s a good idea to visit the famous Izumo Taisha Shrine (officially Izumo Oyashiro 出雲大社 いずもおおやしろ) and eat the local specialty, Wariko Soba noodles (割子蕎麦).

☆★☆This is what it was actually like!☆★☆
—12 hour trip on the Sunrise Express (Solo Room)—
* So many security cameras at Tokyo Station.
* Taking a warm shower on the train while it’s snowing outside was an unusual experience.
* If you have 12 hours, you can fly to the United States, but I felt that the slow journey itself was the real pleasure of traveling by train.
* The bed was fully flat and the mattress was soft so I didn’t get tired at all.
* I recommend booking a seat on the right side of the train so you can see the other trains and the beautiful view of Lake Shinji.
* Just in case, I bought a lucky charm for marriage at Izumo Taisha Shrine. (For myself)
* Izumo City’s soba noodle was is good because you can enjoy various flavors at once.

A challenge to visit every country in the world… “Japan” is the “1st” country that I visited out of all the 196 counties in the world.
