BULLET TRAIN 700 SERIES

新幹線700系[SHIKANSEN NANAHYAKUKEI]

Debut: 1999
Max. speed: 285 km/h
Route: Tokyo – Hakata
Nicknames: Nozomi, Hikari, Kodama
This series was developed in pursuit of not only speed but also riding comfort and economic efficiency. It is characterized by its flat “duck-bill” nose designed to mitigate the piston effect when the trains enter tunnels. As a new generation of Shinkansen, it set the standards for the N700 and other ensuing series.
