All Japanese sleeping limited express trains connect a smoking vehicle.

Can you believe that? All sleeper-trains in Japan are running connecting a smoking car. Smoking is freely allowed in these trains,
and, of course, there is an ashtray on a table of a room.

These sleeper-trains operated by railway companies of JR-East, JR-Hokkaido, JR-Tokai and JR-West neglect the world trend
to abolish smoking room in a railway train.
This is harmful to a train passenger, train conductor and sales woman in the vehicle.
Japanese Government and a local prefecture do not control the undesirable policy of these railway companies. It is very
regretable thing, compared to the advanced countries.

Smoking ban in the railway trains of Japan
Three major Japanese railway companies think that the smoking car and/or smoking booth
in a train are the superb service for train passengers.



Special Note:
 Two South Kuril and two islands off Hokkaido are the own land of Japan.
