The name "Toreiyu" is a blend of the Japanese pronunciations of the English word "train" (torein) and the French word "soleil" (soreiyu) meaning sun. The interior is equipped with reserved tatami mat seating, a bar counter stocked with locally brewed Yamagata sake, wine and juice, and footbaths for relaxing while enjoying the scenery outside the window. While aboard, take a stroll as though in a hot spring town and enjoy this new mode of Shinkansen travel.
