– Sunrise Express consists of two trains, Sunrise Izumo and Sunrise Seto. They’re combined on their way from Tokyo to Okayama, then split up and travel to two different places.
– Unlike most modern trains, Sunrise Express has not one or two, but six types of accommodations!
– Let’s say you don’t want to spend a fortune on your privacy, or you’re going to travel with a companion. In this case, you can opt for class B which offers passengers different kinds of accommodations.
– Sunrise Express has everything you may need to have a comfortable trip. There are enough toilets to take an early morning bathroom trip without getting stuck in a restroom line.
– There’s one important thing you should remember unless you’re traveling in a first class Single Deluxe compartment. If you want to take a shower, you need to buy a special card.
– Shinkansen’s operating speed can reach 200 miles per hour! But according to test runs in 2003, Shinkansen can increase its speed up to 361 miles per hour!
– The train has been running for almost 55 years and has already carried more than 10 billion passengers.
– All Japanese high-speed trains have an automatic emergency brake system that comes into action in case of an earthquake.
– The world’s busiest train station is Shinjuku which has more than 3.6 million visitors.
– The longest train that runs upside down is also in Japan. To see this wonder, you need to travel an hour outside of Tokyo, where you’ll find yourself in a beachy prefecture called Chiba.
– There is so much train fandom in the country that train lovers separate into numerous groups, from those whose hobby is to walk around train stations to those who can’t live without train lunch boxes.
