Take the bullet train from Tokyo, but then slow it down—and go a bit back in time—with Japan’s first luxury sleeper train, which first started chugging along the tracks of this lush southern island this past December. The seven-carriage, 14-suite train combines high-tech amenities wrapped in all the period charm of an Orient Express: fully automated toilets meet wood-paneled interiors painstakingly crafted by traditional artisans from rich rosewood and walnut. Itineraries winding through the seven prefectures of Kyushu (hence the name) range from two to four days and start at about $1,726 per person, including all meals and excursions.Recommended for:
