You Can Ride a Real Life Star Wars Hype Train in Japan
They might often be a bit over-the-top, but you can't deny that the Japanese know how to do fandom right. Not content with two Star Wars-themed passenger planes, Japan is now letting fans climb aboard a literal Star Wars hype train. 

The Nankai Rap:it train service, which runs through Osaka, recently unveiled a new train that's completely decked out in full Star Wars: The Force Awakens regalia. With a complete Force Awakens wrap covering its exterior, this Star Wars hype train immediately stands out from its companions as it pulls into stations, but it's the Sith-like nose cones that really complete the look.



As this next video shows, the Star Wars experience doesn't stop when passengers enter the train. Inside, there are replica models and more artwork wraps that will help make this the geekiest train journey you've ever been on.



This special Star Wars train will be running until May 2016, so there's plenty of time to get on board.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18th in the US (and Japan) on December 18th.
