In Pursuit of Japan's Beauty
With eight all-electric cars, this train is based on the N700 series, featuring the latest and highest reliability,
and has been designed to tackle the steep inclines (35 permil) in the Kyushu Shinkansen area.
Boasting an indigo white body color reminiscent of traditional celadon porcelain, the train represents sophisticated
beauty. To portray a sleek, toned image in comparison with the body color, the lines along the side use a dark
indigo color, expressing strength and speed without spoiling the beauty.
The design is topped off with overlapping lines of gold,
a color used in Japanese gold-relief lacquerware,
for a feel of dignity and superiority.
