The Story Behind The Train

Dashing along Japan’s Golden Route

N700S Exterior

The symbolic colors of the Tokaido Shinkansen, with its white body and blue lines, are also present on the new train, the N700S.

The “S” stands for “Supreme.” The Tokaido/Sanyo Shinkansen, which crosses Japan and connects Tokyo, Osaka, and Hakata, has been fully renewed for the first time in 13 years, and made safer and more comfortable.

What’s more, this train is designed for long-haul comfort with seats that you cannot get tired of, luggage corners near the doors (on all odd number cars except cars one and 11), and easy-to-read-and-understand onboard guidance displays.
