From the giri-choco ('obligation chocolate') specialty shop to the dreamy illumination of Tokyo Tower, Valentine’s Day enthusiasts have plenty to look forward to this weekend. If you want to make the feeling last all the way to White Day on March 14, which is when men traditionally give women gifts, you can hop on the Keikyu Love Train.
To celebrate the month of love, Keikyu Corporation has decorated one of its cars with seat covers bearing red hearts and red heart-shaped straps – although good luck getting your hands on those as there are only two of them at the front of the car. Instead of the usual priority seat sign, there's now a sign saying ‘Express your gratitude to those important to you’.
How do you find this train? Well, it's on the Keikyu Main Line running between Tokyo and Kanagawa and it is marked with a special Love Train sign. We know, it seems it's very much up to chance whether you manage to actually find this train. But isn't that the way with love.
