上野站係四季島嘅出發地，所以乘客上車時會從專用候車室「Prologue 四季島」步行至專用月台 (13.5號月台，位於13及14號月台中間) 上車。列車環繞東日本後會返回上野站，故有大量時間可供拍照。
[#J_RAILWAY] TRAIN SUITE SHIKISHIMA is a cruise train (luxury overnight train) travelling around Eastern Japan and Hokkaido. Ueno is the home of SHIKISHIMA, where passengers take rests in the lounge ‘PROLOGUE SHIKISHIMA’ before boarding, and use the designated platform no.13.5 (between plat. 13 & 14) for boarding. If you checked the train timetable, you could meet SHIKISHIMA and take loads of pictures at Ueno station even you are not lucky enough to ride on!
