The definition of the same "tourist train" depends on the person who defines it.

Major travel agencyJTBJTB Research Institute, a think tank of Japan, defines a sightseeing train as "a train whose purpose is to ride, such as elaborating the interior and exterior and allowing you to travel while enjoying the taste."[1][2].. On the other hand,Nara Prefectural UniversityProfessor Katsuhiro Shinno (Transport Economics / Transportation Policy / Tourist Destination Transportation)Japan Private Railway AssociationIn his contribution to the public relations magazine, "trains used by tourists (whether or not the purpose is a railroad)" is broadly defined as a tourist train, from tourists to sightseeing of the vehicle itself. It states that the definition itself has changed[2]. Also,Hokkai Gakuen UniversityTomoya Fujita (Traffic Economics, Regional Economics, Tourism Economics), who is a lecturer, said, "(XNUMX) Main users are tourists, (XNUMX) Tourism resources are included, and (XNUMX) Interiors.・ The exterior design is characteristic, and (XNUMX) a train that has a unique nickname and is operated by a dedicated vehicle is defined as a (broadly defined) sightseeing train.[3].

In addition, as a vehicle with a special interior and exteriorJoyful TrainHowever, according to the aforementioned Shinno, this is "Group travelPart of the serviceIn that respect, it is different from a sightseeing train.[2]..However, the sightseeing trainGroup trainBecause it is sometimes operated as a joyful train and the distinction between the two is ambiguous, railway hobby magazines may confuse the two.[4].
