Japan tests the fastest train in the world

Japan has begun tests on the latest version of the bullet trains, which is expected to reach its top speed to a staggering figure

The new train, named "Alfa-X", is expected to be operational during the next decade and will have a top speed of 500 km per hour, the Bloomberg news agency reported Friday

Japan's railway company plans to operate the first-stage train at a speed of 360 kilometers per hour, an increase of 10 kilometers from the Chinese train Fuxing Hao, which connects Beijing and Shanghai

The design of the Japanese train seems somewhat strange, having a longer "nose" than usual before the cockpit because designers thought this was the best thing to overcome the severe wind problems when entering tunnels

The "nose" of the train is about 22 meters long, and the steering wheel has three windows. The Japanese high-speed train consists of 10 locomotives, and its color will be silver

It is expected to operate in one day a week over a three-year period between the cities of Aomori and Sendai

The bullet trains are not new to Japan, as they entered the service for the first time in 1964 in conjunction with the Tokyo Olympics, and became a symbol of efficiency and accuracy

Trains, also known as Shinkansen, are rarely scheduled, although one departs from Tokyo every few minutes to destinations such as Osaka and Kyoto, making it a better solution than using aircraft

Japan launched the first shot train in the world connecting the city of Tokyo and Osaka 50 years ago. The Japanese high-speed rail system Shinkansen introduced this new type of train to Europe and Asia, while the great development of cars and aircraft threatened the superiority of these trains. Then the bullet train after World War II became the pride of Japan and the beginning of the renaissance of the Japanese economy

Japan tests the fastest train in the world

The ceremony was held on October 1, 1964, and the opening ribbon was cut on Wednesday at 6 am in Tokyo Station

The first round of the world-class shot and the beautiful circular introduction moved from Tokyo to Osaka in four hours, providing two-and-a-half hours of the 513 km journey

The last train took only two hours and twenty-five minutes later on this trip

Araki is now 73 years old. But in 1967 he was driving this train while training as a rail engineer

Araki sits on the driver's seat in a model of an old shot train displayed at the railway museum outside Tokyo. He raised an arm in the console and looked forward as though he were rehearsing while all he could see was the other things in the museum

"This train makes you feel like you're flying in the sky," says Araki, now acting director of the museum. "You can see the top of Mount Fuji and pass over Hamanako, making you feel like you're sailing in the water
