The Rail Kitchen Chikugo

By Weekender Editor

Take a trip on the splendid sightseeing train The Rail Kitchen Chikugo. Launched in March 2019 by Nishi-Nippon Railroads Co. (Nishitetsu), the traveling restaurant plies the Chikugo area, less than an hour south of central Fukuoka. Meticulously curated meals are prepared from scratch and served on modern ceramic and wood-based works by Chikugo’s finest craftsmen. The train also offers passengers a chance to stop off and discover the hidden stories of three of Kyushu’s most picturesque historical towns – Dazaifu, Yanagawa and Omuta.

How Much: ¥3,300 (operated on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.)
