We cannot think about the travel in Japan without Shinkansen. Especially Tokaido Shinkansen (Tokyo-Shin Osaka) can be used for transfer to Kyoto and Osaka from Tokyo. Most of travellers take this Shinkansen once or more. Probably you want to see the interior of Shinkansen trains. There are several types of trains to be operated on Tokaido Shinkansen. I show you all types of trains of Tokaido Shinkansen trains. And also most of Tokaido Shinkansen trains go through on Sanyo Shinkansen between Shin-Osaka and Hakata. So if you take Sanyo Shinkansen, this post may be useful for you too.

This type is used for most of Nozomi that is operated between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka, some of Hikari and a few Kodama that is operated by early morning or late night. This 700 series is replacing with 300 series these days. This will be the main stream of trains on Tokaido Shinkansen instead of 300 series. 700 series is used for Hikari Rail Star that is operated between Shin-Osaka and Hakata. But the exterior and interior are different.

This type is the newest train and the best. This gives you the best comfortability and smooth ride. But this is used mostly for Nozomi that is operated between Tokyo and Hakata. There are a few Hikari and Kodama that are operated by this series. But is is early morning or late night and it is very limited and short distance operation. N700’s Green seat is called “Synchronized comfort seat”. This is the best seat in Shinkansen trains. All Green seat equip a power outlet, and the first row, last row and window side of Ordinary seat have a power outlet too. N700 series is only Shinkansen train that has WiFi access between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka. It is not free. The easiest way to get a connection is buying one day passport from Hot Spot.

The newest train Mizuho and Sakura on Sanyo-Kyushu Shinkansen are operated by same series. But the interior is different. I don’t have any images. But you will find some on the post, Kyushu Shinkansen Mizuho and Sakura.
