The Lorentz transform of black-body radiation has been investigated from the viewpoint of relativistic statistical mechanics. The result shows that the well-known expression with the directional temperature can be derived based on the inverse-temperature four-vector. The directional temperature in the past literature was the result of mathematical manipulation and its physical meaning is not clear. The inverse-temperature four-vector has, in contrast, clear meaning to understand relativistic thermodynamical processes.
