What we aimed for was a moving space that is one class higher.
By adopting new functions and facilities that focus on the comfort of each individual guest, we offer high-grade travel time for everyday activities, leisure, and business occasions.
*The Limited Express Southern operates as an 8-car train consisting of 4 reserved-seat cars and 4 unreserved-seat cars.
You can ride the non-reserved seat car without reserved seat tickets.

Vehicle Design

Designed by the concept "South Wave"

The blue line leading from the front of the vehicle to the upper side of the vehicle and the rounded blue and orange lines on the lower side of the vehicle are the "waves" of people and vehicles surging to Osaka Bay and Wakayama, and of people rushing to South Osaka (Minami) from all over the country.

We will create a new "wave" to South Osaka (Minami) with the new Southern.
