Synopsis
March 2015, Hokuriku Shinkansen began service. It travels between Tokyo and Kanazawa in 2 hours and 28 minutes. It is the first bullet train to run along the Sea of Japan. A dream-like “super limited express” was born from the proud skills of the Japanese. Speed and beauty have been combined in its notable design. Its blue markings match the perfectly clear blue sky in the Hokuriku region. Its copper markings resemble Japanese traditional crafts.
