The latest express train that connects Sapporo and other places
JR Hokkaido's 789 series 1000 trains are operated as "Kamuy" between Sapporo and Asahikawa, and "Suzuran" between Sapporo and Muroran. The origin of "Kamuy" comes from the Ainu language for a high-ranking spiritual being with deity.
Inheriting the high cab design and the urban silver impression of the 785 series, it appeared in 2007 as the L Express "Super Kamuy" and the rapid "Airport", replacing the conventional 781 series. Attractive features include the sharp headlights, the beauty of the short but well-proportioned 5-car train, the fully covered underfloor equipment to prevent snow buildup, and JR Hokkaido's unique reserved seat service, "U-Seat." In addition, we use KATO's unique technology to reproduce the modern silver metallic stainless steel body and the difference in texture of the steel forehead.
