A Japanese train company has found a way to help its passengers relax after
dealing with the stress of the workday and crowded train stations. Customers
who book a seat on Fuji Kyuko's Friday night beer run can sit back and spend
a two-hour trip by drinking as much beer as they want.
The beer train, as Reuters calls it, plies a route normally used by businesspeople
"People are enjoying it so much, it is almost completely booked up throughout
August," said Naotaka Nishiyama, a spokesman for the company.
Beer-drinking passengers are advised to take advantage of stops at stations
along the route, since the train has no toilets.
