“`A Hello Kitty-themed shinkansen bullet train has debuted in Japan. Adorned with the icon inside and out, it’s a dream ride for fans of the internationally popular character.

“`The stylish, eight-car train is painted pink and white, showcasing images and trademark ribbons from flooring to seat covers and windows. In one car, the life-size Hello Kitty doll donning a train crew uniform and a hat — decorated with a pink bow, of course — greeted passengers and offered a chance for selfies.

“`The special shinkansen had its inaugural round trip this weekend, between Osaka and Fukuoka, connecting Japan’s west and south. Hours later in Osaka, the train’s final stop, hundreds of fans waited for the arrival of the first Hello Kitty shinkansen, cheering and snapping photos during the sixteen-minute stopover before it traveled back to Fukuoka, according to Japanese media reports.

“`Hello Kitty, created in 1974 by the Japanese Sanrio Co., is a global icon with fans of all ages. With over forty years in the market, the round-faced feline with no mouth is still seen everywhere, on stationery and towels to jewelry and even furniture.
