Train Illustrated with One Piece Now in Service for Kumamoto Restoration Project!

Takamori, Aso District and Yunomae, Kuma District in Kumamoto Prefecture are working together with Oda Eiichiro's popular manga One Piece to restore Kumamoto after the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes.

As part of the project, a train wrapped in One Piece illustrations is currently running on the Kumagawa Rail Road, and another commenced its run on the Minamiaso Railway from Nov. 27, at 9:00 a.m. An inauguration ceremony was held at Takamori Station on the same day, with Luffy’s voice actor Tanaka Mayumi in attendance.

The One Piece train features announcements by Luffy, and passengers are all presented with a postcard featuring an original illustration.
