Kawaii fans rejoice, your childhood fantasies are about to come true. A Hello Kitty bullet train is in the works and coming sooner than you might think.

The special edition train will invite passengers in the playful world of Hello Kitty through exclusive design features on its first and second carriages. The first carriage called “Hello! Plaza!” will serve more as a gift shop for visitors able to purchase regional goods, learn about various local attractions and a photo area to take selfies with a huge hello kitty doll.

The second carriage is “Kawaii! Room” and will be the main leisure area, and will include a “very pink” interior with seating and surfaces decorated with the cute sanrio character.

Mark your calendars because the train is set to make its debut on June 30 between Osaka and Hakata for a limited amount of time. Check out concept art for the Hello Kitty train in the gallery above.

In other news, Elon Musk says the new Tesla Model 3 “will beat anything in its class on the track”.
