When you mix one of Japan's most lauded novelists and trains you get two of Japan's most sought-after pastimes in one. Literature and transport. "Botchan" is one of Natsume Soseki's most-loved novels which focuses (in a fictional sense) on his time as a teacher in Matsuyama in Ehime Prefecture. Novelty trains can be seen across Japan but the Botchan train carries so much history and adoration that it ranks, easily, as one of Japan's best train experiences.
