Japan is one of the most developed countries in the world, boasting one of the fastest means of transportation. The Asian country is famous for its Shinkansen bullet trains, which are designed for long-distance rather than local travel.
Last year, Central Japan Railway officially launched its first Series Shinkansen N700S bullet train into service. It can run up to 360 kilometers per hour, making it one of the fastest trains in the world.
The record-breaking bullet train, whose operating speed will be capped at 285 kilometers per hour, is currently serving the Tokaido Shinkansen line.
N700S doesn’t only run faster and smoother than the model it will replace, but can also transport passengers to safety in the event of an earthquake.
Inside, it features overhead baggage racks that lights up at every station to prevent passengers from leaving their belongings behind.
The seat and backrest are designed to move together when reclining to help passengers rest during long rides. Power outlets are also installed on every seat to charge phones or to power electric devices.
