This is one of the major private railway companies to cover all Kinki area of Japan. It is convenient to use Kintestu for a sightseeing Nara, Kyoto and Ise-shima areas.
Kintetsu is one of the major Japanese railroad companies that allow a smoking in the train.
Nowadays, all Japanese railway trains, except for shinkansen trains operated by Tokai and JR West, and very few night trains, are smoke-free.
All limited Kintetsu express trains provide a smoking booth in their vehicles. They are always saying that there is the need for smokers, they will provide the smoking
place, at even in a 75-minute limited-express ride to Yoshino. The company completely neglects a harmful side-smoke from a cigarette room built in a train. It is well-known that an air-cleaner in the smoking booth of a train does not entirely eliminate toxicity. This fact is well-recognized and confirmed by 50 countries of the World, 100% banning smoking in a train to protect public heath.
All Olympic host countries, after the war, smoking act in the train is completely prohibited. I hope the Kintestu removes smoking booth in a train, as soon as possible.More
