Resort trains are the latest trend in Japan, with all sorts of comforts, where the ride is more important than the destination. If you are in Tokyo, Izu Craile provides the perfect weekend getaway, offering a wondrous journey across the beautiful landscape of the southernmost part of Izu Peninsula, in a comfortable space and with the most delicious food.
 
Izu Craile is a four-car train running from Odawara to Izukyū-Shimoda Station. You can enjoy the magnificent sea view while sitting back in different types of seating fashions, be they the ordinary face-to-face arrangement, the counter or the compartment seating. The ride also has a slow side to it, since a number of brief stops will allow you to fully enjoy the scenery from the train window. The interiors are elegantly decorated with sakura, sea breeze and ripple motifs.
 
One further point of appeal is the bentō, assembled and packed under the supervision of Sakura Akimoto, the owner and chef of the renowned French restaurant Morceau, with the freshest ingredients of the area, original sweets and craft beer from Izu. The users of car no. 3 are also free to partake of the all-you-can-drink wine bar.
 
The functional amenities and the tremendous attention to the details will make your Izu Craile ride a truly unique experience.
