“Shinkansen” is the fastest train in Japan.
Shinkansen has been put into practical use in 1964.
Shinkansen can move faster than 200km/h, and it has the dangerousness of contact with the car, therefore there are no trail crossing on Shinkansen railroad.
Because it is fast and secure, vehicles of Shinkansen are exported to high-speed rail in Chinese Taipei, and many other countries.
Are there such high speed train in your country?
