Sci-fi fans, travellers and curious onlookers gathered around Nankai's Rapi:t train in Osaka, Saturday, to take in the rail service's stunning Star Wars themed carriages.

The entire 6-car train was decoratively wrapped with pictures of Star Wars characters to promote the release of the sci-fi saga newest installment, 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'. Inside the train there were also Star Wars themed common spaces and realistic models of Star Wars movie characters.

The Nankai Rapi:t train is a rapid rail service between Kansai International Airport and Namba Station in Osaka, Japan. It is operated by Nankai Electric Railway. The futuristic and retro-style six-car Rapi:t trainsets, officially designated as the Nankai 50000 series, were designed by architect Wakabayashi Hiroyuki and won the Blue Ribbon Prize in 1995, one year after entering service.
