Limited Express Rapi:t

The Limited Express Rapi:t is an express train that runs between Namba station and Kansai Airport Station in Osaka. The train’s top speed is 120km, fast compared to the local line trains, but less than half of top speed of the bullet train.  

The true beauty of this train is in the design. Designed around a concept of “retro-future”, the cool front of the train, resembling a pilot’s helmet, gives the train a very distinctive appearance.
