First cars of JR West's W1 series shinkansen arrived to Kanazawa



storyHere you can see one of the first cars of the old-new Hokuriku shinkansen line, which started commercial operation on the 14th of March, 2015. The cars were made by Kawasaki Rolling Stock Co., then they were shipped to the port of Kobe, from where they started their 2-days journey on the sea. These trains provide fast and reliable connection with the regions at the Sea of Japan, and bring economical boost in Ishikawa and Toyama prefectures as the number of the tourists is continously increasing.
