In case you missed out last time.

If you didn’t get a chance to hit Japan last year when the Hello Kitty bullet train was in action, it’s time to let go of your disappointment.

A brand new train dedicated to the feline icon has arrived, this time running between Kansai Airport and Kyoto.

The trip will take about 80 minutes in total and will stop at Tennoji and Shin Osaka along the way.

On the exterior of the new Haruka train, you’ll find floral illustrations featuring Hello Kitty in traditional Japanese dress.

Carriage interiors match, too, with the same designs appearing on doors, walls and curtains.

Hello Kitty Haruka is set to make its debut trip today, with tickets available here.
