"PANDA-Twins seat" of Limited Express Kuroshio for West Japan Railway Co.

The Panda-Twins seat will appear from tomorrow.

 2 units of lovely panda-twins seat will appear in the Limited Express Kuroshio from 19th till next March. The panda-twins seats are installed only in the 4th car of a train which is open to any passengers who would like to take a pictures and to have a seat freely.
 Kuroshio runs mainly between Shin-Osaka and Shirahama. The idea of panda twin seats came from newly-born baby panda twins at “Adventure World” ( Shirahama-city, Wakayama pref.) last September.
 The armrest was designed as a forefoot and the seat itself was designed as a hind leg. We could feel as being hugged by panda bear.
The railway company is facing with the difficult situation due to special discount campaign of express highway toll, therefore the company is trying to promote saying that "for your good memory in summer vacation by taking Limited Express Kuroshio with Panda- twin seat ."
