All Aboard Japan's Star Wars: The Force Awakens Train

This all makes sense for a country that already has, not one, but two Star Wars aeroplanes.

As part of the seemingly endless Force Awakens promotional push, the Nankai Rapi:t train service, which runs between Kansai International Airport and Osaka City's Namba Station, is getting covered in a good helping of the Force.

According to GetNews, Cinema Today, Cinema Cafe, and Tetsudo My Navi, the train begins service tomorrow.

The train itself already looks cool as hell. Below is a photo of the unwrapped train.

The darker colour does suit this train.

Those lightsabers also suit those train conductors.

While not as, hrm, obsessively thorough as the Neon Genesis Evangelion bullet train, there is Star Wars throughout.

    That black colour does really suit the train, I hope they keep it that way. Also, if this train ran anywhere else in the world that R2-D2 would be vandalised or stolen on the very first day and station it pulls into
