Share a Marvelous Moment in Nature
Dine in style on a traveling restaurant
The “Fifty Two Seats of Happiness” a travelling restaurant operated by Seibu Railways, offers the chance to experience fine dining while viewing gorgeous seasonal scenery of Musashino and Chichibu in northwest Tokyo and Saitama Prefecture.
Designed by a creative team including a world-renowned architect, these four renovated cars are decorated to match the four seasons. The cars can accommodate from 20 to 52 guests—hence the name. Some cars are designed with traditional materials in reference to the surrounding nature, such as the Arakawa River and the Chichibu Mountains.
Visitors may partake in a dinner or brunch while admiring the scenery from large windows. The primarily western menu changes with the seasons and is prepared by distinguished chefs. This experience is a feast for the eyes and the palette.
The train operates about 100 days per year, mainly on weekends and holidays.
Access: The train departs from Seibu-Shinjuku Station/Ikebukuro Station and returns from from Seibu-Chichibu Station.
