JR Kyushu announced it will eliminate the remaining limited express sleeper trains it operates between the region and Tokyo next March. These are the Fuji, from Oita, and the Hayabusa, from Kumamoto. The elimination of service will bring to an end a half-century of Kyushu railroad history. Japan’s first limited express sleeper train was the Asakaze, which began running between Fukuoka and Tokyo in 1958.
