Get a foot bath while riding the train

YAMAGATA, Japan (NBC/NTV) — Feet feeling tired?

A Japanese train operator has unveiled what may be the first train equipped with a foot bath.

Jr East pulled the wraps off its latest bullet train Monday in northern Japan.

One of the train’s cars has two foot baths — each big enough for four people.

Another car has a bar and a tatami room where people can relax and sample local sake after their bath.

An official says the train is designed to evoke the atmosphere of a hot spring resort.

The train will run on weekends in northern Japan, an area famous for its hot springs.
