Bullet train Tokaido line, Nagoya to Tokyo, Japan

The Bullet train Tokaido line was started operation on 1964 when was the Tokyo Olympic year. The first Tokaido Shinkansen (bullet train) line was running through from Tokyo to Osaka via Nagoya and Kyoto.

The Shinkansen is meaning the “New” arterial railroad; the newer railroad systems than the conventional railway before 1964. The Shinkansen was the separate railway system from the former conventional line. There was huge difference in track width (Shinkansen has1435mm gauge, conventional has 1067mm), signal system including ATC, power source and carriage which has smart nose and powerful motor, between Shinkansen and conventional rail road. In Tokaido or Sanyo sections, the Shinkansen line and conventional line were separately and parallel-ly running among the huge cities.

The Shinkansen will be the major transportation system for the foreign tourists. The comfortable and wide carriage and kind purser will give us the memorable journey.

 
 

Tip: Mt Fuji view from Shinkansen?
Reserve the Seat E, mountain side window seat. There are ABC DE designation in the standard class, AB CD designation in Green car (as First class, in this carriage, D is the mountain side window seat).
You will get the view of Mt.Fuji between Shizuoka and Shinfuji. Shizuoka is the station on the Tokyo side.
To get beautiful view of Mr.Fuji, I recommend you to travel on mid winter sunny day. In winter, cold air will clear the view of the mountains.
