Japan has some of the best train networks in the world. Japan's high-speed train called Shinkansen (bullet train) connects most of major cities on the main island and Kyushu. Ever since the Tokaido Shinkansen line was opened in 1964, the line has continued to extend by centering Tokyo. With the maximum running speeds of over 300 km/h, Shinkansen provides more conveniences to both commuters and travelers.

Type of Shinkansen (Tokaido/Sanyo Shinkansen)

Nozomi: The fastest trains running on the routes stop only at the major stations.
Hikari: The second fastest trains running on the routes stop at a few more stations than Nozomi trains.
Kodama: The slowest trains running on the routes stop at every station.
