Travel In A Cartoon-Filled World By Riding The Anpanman Train In Japan

For fans of Anpanman, the iconic superhero that everybody fell in love with as a child, you will be excited to know that you can relive those memories with just a train ride. The Anpanman train is a JR rail special express train that runs between several cities in Japan, acting as a contemporary tribute to Takashi Yanase (1919-2013), creator of the Anpanman children’s manga and anime series.

There are three routes that the Anpanman train takes — from Okayama Station to Matsuyama on the Yosan Line, from Okayama to Kubokawa on the Dosan Line, and on the Kotuku Line where it travels from Takamatsu to Tokushima.
