E257 series 500

East Japan Railway
Limited Express Electric Train "SAZANAMI, WAKASHIO"

Drawing on the style of the first "Amenity Vehicles," the body structure is made as broad as possible for rolling stock and provides spaciousness hitherto unknown in train passenger cabins. Both the internal and external design reflect the logo colors of the Boso expresses, namely blue (the deep blue of the Pacific), yellow (the brilliant sunshine and rape blossom of the Boso region) and white (summer beaches). All these factors combine to provide a comfortable journey.
