The new limited express “HINOTORI” connecting Osaka and Nagoya will debut on March 14, 2020!

For the limited express service connecting Osaka-Namba and Nagoya, Kintetsu Railway will add the new model “HINOTORI” with the concept of “updated relaxation”.
This new limited express, “HINOTORI”, is named after as a phoenix. Based on the image as a phoenix spreads its wide wings and flies freely, we created the new classy vehicles, not only with exterior design, but also with the interiors that offer high-quality travel services in the spacious seats.

The first and last train cars are designated as the “premium cars” where the authentic-leather seats are installed, and the space between seats is 130cm apart that is the maximum seat space Japanese trains currently provide.
Moreover, not only for the premium cars, but also on all seats of all cars, we adopted the back shell system that allows reclining without bothering a passenger behind your seat. This is the first train to install back-shell seats on all cars in Japan!

In addition to free Wi-Fi, there are lockers that can store even large suitcases!
Can’t wait to get on this new limited express!
