This podcast is dedicated to the incredible invention of Japanese engineers
— high speed railway network in Japan, designed for the carriage of passengers between major cities in the country.
The movement on the lines started in 1964, when the rest of the world these technologies not even dreamed of.
Accidents on high-speed trains in Japan was only two, and no one was hurt.
Shinkansen is the term used to describe bullet trains in Japan and it literally means “new trunk line.” Sometimes referred to as “super express” services in English, Shinkansen trains mostly run on dedicated tracks and stop only at major stations. They are operated by Japan Railways (JR) Group companies and feature some of the fastest trains in the world, traveling at up to 320 kilometers per hour.
