Hello Kitty Bullet Train Begins Services
A sleek Hello Kitty bullet train festooned with images of the world-famous character has begun services. The train will run between the western cities of Osaka and Fukuoka, the West Japan Railway Company said, hoping that one of the country’s most famous exports will boost tourism.
Inside the train, Hello Kitty smiles down from the shades of every window, while one car features a “life-sized Hello Kitty doll” for fans to take selfies with. Another car will have no passenger seats but offer regional specialities, including a selection of goods and foods, in a bid to boost the local economy and tourism.
Hello Kitty has spawned a multibillion-dollar industry since Sanrio introduced it in 1974, adorning everything from pencil cases and pyjamas to double-decker buses and airliners.
Sadly the Hello Kitty decorated train will only run for three months.
