This HO-KAGO tea time train, has taken on the decoration of the moeblob anime K-ON and decked in pretty colors. Obviously the school, Sakuragaoka in K-ON has been modeled after the old Toyosato Primary School in the area. The purpose of the train is to advertise the upcoming K-ON movie at the end of 2011.
