東武鉄道プレスリリース/Tobu Railway pressrelease

Tobu Railway new Express train Type 500 was designed by KEN OKUYAMA DESIGN.

◆Exterior design
nnovative and symbolic design of the TOKYO SKYTREE is taken in account for its design. The “champagne beige” as its basic body color, expressing our affluent life, and the “forest green” color as abundant nature along the railways. The Tobu group’s “future blue” color is at the bottom of the windows.

◆Interior design
For the interior, we used a traditional purple from Edo period “Edo Murasaki” on the seat, and the design of the ceiling is inspired from the image of Kinu river and Sumida river.

The new train will be ready in the spring of 2017.
