Go! Go! Limited Express Trains!
This event has ended.
The advent of “limited express” trains began with the Kodama, a popular shinkansen (bullet) train that started running between Tokyo and Osaka/Kobe in 1958. Over the last six decades various types of trains have been added to the railroads that connect Hokkaido and Kyushu, offering all kinds of services and running speeds. This exhibition traces the history of limited express trains, introducing them through photographs, ephemera, videos, models and so on. It will cover both Japan Railway trains and those operated by private companies. Here you can encounter the latest E353 series now running on the Chuo main line “Azusa” service, as well as the now defunct 583 series that was taken out of circulation in spring 2017 after 50 years in operation.
