N700 Bullet Train

The fastest bullet train or Shinkansen for Japan now is the N700. The N700 can travel as fast as half of the speed of an airplane. Without limiting its speed, the N700 is capable of 186mph. The N700 trains are scheduled for eight trips a day, with plans to increase that number to thirty by the end of March.

There are two different classes of seating available for the N700. They are the luxury green cars and the standard economy cars. Both seatings will feature free Internet and trays that fold out for a place to work. The green seats keep all of the hookups confined to the armrest, while the cheaper plugs are located in the wall, near the floor.
