The arrival of this specially decorated Limited Express rapi:t commemorates both the 70th anniversary of Izumisano City and the 40th anniversary of Kinnikuman. The train has run between “Namba” station and “Kansai Airport” station on the Nankai line since March 23, 2019. It will be in operation for approximately one year.
The front car of the train gallantly features illustrations of Kinnikuman and Inunakin that were newly drawn by Yudetamago, the author duo of “Kinnikuman,” with some of Izumisano’s sightseeing spots like Inunakisan Shipporyuji Temple and its specialties including Senshu onions, Mizunasu eggplants, cabbages, and Senshu towels in the background.
The middle cars of the train feature leading characters who have appeared throughout the “Kinnikuman” series in order of their appearance.
This design allows us to look back on the 40-year history of Kinnikuman.
Please take this opportunity to ride or take a look at Inunakin and Kinnikuman teaming up on this specially decorated train.
