Japan Red launches today! 3.16 Debut
A new Shinkansen (bullet train) will launch today from Akita called Japan Red.
I kept seeing the advert on the trains around here and it looks really cool.
I still love the Shinkansen in Japan as it’s so different and futuristic compared to the trains back home, as I’m not usually a fan of trains .
The service will run from Akita to Tokyo, and it will go through Morioka, Sendai and Omiya, among other places.
When I have seen adverts they have also included the Namahage, which is one of my favourite stories/myths from Northern Japan. (Click here for information on Namahage).
The maximum cost I think will be 17,310円 (£120.24) for a one way ticket from Akita to Tokyo.
I hope to use this train one day to Akita !
