Konnichi-wa, pirates! We have some purrrr-fect news....

Next month, a Hello Kitty bullet train - also known as a shinkansen - will debut on the railways of Japan. Connecting Osaka and Fukoaka, it's a must-do for anyone who fancies exploring Japan with an added touch of cuteness.

West Japan Railway have released exclusive artist's renderings on what the train will look like - as expected, think bows, kittens and plenty of pink!

The pictures released from the railway tell us that absolutely everything will be Hello Kitty themed - from the headrests to the windows, floors and seats.

In the Hello! Plaza car, there will be an exhibition area AND a gift shop for ticking off your souvenir shopping as you travel, while another coach comes with a fully fledged photo booth for capturing the trip.

It doesn't stop with the aesthetics: when the train approaches a station, the typical jingle will be replaced with the Hello Kitty theme song.
