Outline

N700 series trains are the fastest next-generation bullet trains for direct service on the Tokaido and Sanyo lines. Based on the current 700 series (the main type offering high-speed service on these routes), the trains are designed to be faster and more comfortable, eco-friendly, and energy efficient. The trains offer an even more comfortable and convenient onboard environment that satisfies diverse passenger needs: fully non-smoking except in smoking rooms, more outlets for notebook computers, plentiful multi-purpose rooms and restrooms, new services drawing on advanced technology, and so on.
