A train operator in Kyoto has unveiled a new carriage featuring a huge golden oval on the front and a luxurious interior.

Eizan Electric Railway Co. showed the train to the media on Wednesday, two weeks ahead of its March 21 launch on the Eizan Main Line. The train, named Hiei, is expected to become a new tourist attraction on the sightseeing route from central Kyoto toward Mount Hiei and Lake Biwa, the country’s largest lake, in Shiga Prefecture.
