Discover the "Demon Slayer Trains" in Kyushu, Japan!

JR Kyushu× 'Kimetsu no Yaiba'
"Kimetsu no Yaiba" is a manga series that has exceeded 100 million copies in circulation, gaining huge popularity inside and outside Japan. As the theatrical version "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the MOVIE: Mugen Train" will be released on Friday 16 October in Japan, JR Kyushu and "Kimetsu no Yaiba" has started a collaboration campaign! You will be able to see various types of train wraps based on characters from the movie, e.g. the protagonist Kamado Tanjirō and Nezuko, running around Kyushu until the end of December. The limited express "Kamome" (operating between Hakata and Nagasaki) has started the campaign, while another limited express "Sonic" (operating between Hakata/Nakatsu and Oita) will start the launch on Monday 12 October.

In addition, as the movie is set in the steam locomotive, there will be a real "Mugen Train"! By changing the number plate to "Mugen" (infinity), the SL Hitoyoshi Steam Train will run as "SL Kimetsu no Yaiba" for 5 days in November, during weekends / public holidays. Usually runs only within Kumamoto Prefecture, this time the train will be operating one-way from Kumamoto to Hakata, hence you might have a chance to see it at Hakata Station! Whether you have seen the movie or not, you will definitely be captivated by the "Kimetsu no Yaiba" vibe! Check the official website of JR Kyushu to find out the operating schedule! (>> HERE)!
