With the ever-increasing number of customers, it was the opening of a new high-speed passenger railway while the conventional Tokaido Main Line was approaching its limit. Taking over the concept of the bullet train that existed before the war, it adopted a standard gauge without level crossing at the grade crossing, and it was a unique high-speed railway in Japan that renewed from the power supply to the signal system. While railways are becoming steeped all over the world, they not only made a major contribution to Japan's development during the high-growth period, but also made the world known about the superiority of high-speed railways, and later developed TGV and ICE in Europe. The “SHINKANSEN” has become a universal language. The 0 series Shinkansen trains have been operating for the first time in the world for more than 200 km per hour, and have been active for 44 years from the time of opening to retirement.
