Introducing SPACIA X Limited Express

Tobu Railway's new train features six-seat options including a Cockpit Suite

Starting from 15 July 2023, the new SPACIA X Limited Express will connect Tokyo with Nikko in true luxury. 

The new train will feature a total of six seat variations, including the Cockpit Suite, designed with similar aesthetics to a private jet, the Cockpit Lounge with a café counter and a private room that is a successor to the current SPACIA but offers a higher quality space.

With the concept “Connect & Updatable ~ SPACIA X connects people, time and place ~”, the aim is to connect each customer to their own personalised version of the Nikko and Kinugawa area, and to make them want to visit the area time and time again.

The café counter of the first car, Cockpit Lounge, was designed in the motif of the Nikko Kanaya Hotel and the embassy villas in Nikko. The theme of the menu is unique and local food of Nikko, featuring signature craft beer from Nikko Brewing and local coffee from Nikko Coffee, as well as original appetisers, sweets and other offerings.

The new private compartments contain a U-shaped sofa and adjustable table to allow four people to sit comfortably in a variety of ways. The layout of the table can be changed to suit the composition and purpose of the passengers and their mood at the time, providing the optimum space for each passenger.

In addition to reducing CO2 emissions by up to 40% compared to the current Spacia trains, the power used by this express train will be provided by non-fossil fuel electricity that emits practically zero CO2 emissions from Tokyo Electric Power Company, thereby contributing to the realisation of the “International Eco-Resort Nikko” concept.

The newly designed train is expected to begin operations in 2023 between TOBU SKYTREE Line, Tobu Asakusa, Tobu Nikko and the Kinugawa Onsen Line.
