EVA Air collaborates on new Hello Kitty Branded Bullet Train
In 2005, Taiwan-based air carrier Eva Air teamed up with Sanrio to create the world's first Hello Kitty aircraft. Now, in 2018, Japan Railways Group plans on launching a Hello Kitty branded Shinkansen, or bullet train.The new train will be a rebrand of the 500 Series Shinkansen, which runs at speeds of up to 200mph across the Japanese rail network. The outside of the train will be painted with a unique Hello Kitty livery while the inside will be outfitted with custom appointments in tune with the service– in the same fashion as the aircraft. In the case of Eva's custom livery, each airplane is appointed with custom boarding passes, headrest covers, bathroom amenities and even vomit bags. It's not clear from JR's website what the extent of its customizations will be, but the site already hints that train attendants will wear custom Hello Kitty branded uniforms.
There are plans to overhaul the first car on the Hello Kitty train into a fully branded experience that focuses on select regions of Japan, though details on the appointments are still unpublished. According to the release, the service will start with a focus on the Tottori and Shimane prefectures. A video that the company published also sheds light on the design direction and brand overlap.JR's work with Sanrio comes at a time in which the Hello Kitty brand is surging and in which many Asian travelers will go far out of their way for exposure to the custom experience. Eva's Hello Kitty flights are often booked specifically for the experience and there's even a custom booking engine and search tool for the branded flights.
