A newly introduced luxury sleeper train prohibits smoking in the train.
The Seven Stars in Kyushu is a deluxe sleeping-car-excursion train which
was ordered by Kyushu Railway Company (JR-Kyushu).
It is scheduled to use on services from October 2013. The name of the train
is derived from the seven prefectures of Kyushu,
and the fact that the train will be made up of seven cars.
All vehicles are non-smoking. This is the first Japanese sleeper-train
which prohibits smoking inside of the train car.
Vehicle No.1= Lounge
Vehicle No.2= Restaurant
