If you’re reading this in the middle of your morning subway commute, prepare for a wave of insane jealousy about to sweep over your body.

The JR East Cruise Train, set to launch in Japan in 2017, is promising to take ultra-luxury rail travel to new heights. Accommodating a cozy 34 guests in its 10 cars, the rain will include two glass-walled observation decks at both ends for gorgeous views. Atmosphere will be everything, with furniture conveying the nobility of traditional Japanese culture. Each suite will have a private bathroom with a shower and toilet, while the top sleeping space will be a split-level deluxe suite sleeping four. Designer Ken Okuyama, who has helped create Ferraris, Porsches and Maseratis, is the mastermind behind the $50 million project. Prices start at $1,765 per person for a two-night trip.
