Japan already has some the fastest commuter trains in the world – with railways crisscrossing the country running as fast as small aircraft. While the country is already home to some incredibly speedy trains, Central Japan Railway Co.
There aren’t that many maglev trains in operation yet (one is currently operating in Shanghai, China and another is in Japan). There have been skytrains and monorails before, but this is the world’s first magnetically levitating system of mass transit, which will be built in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The crazy cats in Japan have all sorts of cool gear that we will never see in the US. One of the coolest technological accomplishments in my book is the high-speed bullet trains that can cruise at up to 150 MPH today.
