SHARE THIS AT THE SPEED OF HSR!
Fifty years ago come this October will see the 50th anniversary of the first passenger bullet train in the world. Its inception occurred in Japan, but much of the technology came from us the good ol’ United States of America. As much of the high speed rail (HSR) technology originated in America, this is something we can be proud of, although not a single HSR train runs presently in our country.
Well, to commemorate this 50th anniversary, writer Joanna Symons took a whistlestop tour of Japan, from Tokyo to Hakone. Here is her seminal article and report. It makes for seminal and exciting reading! Here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/asia/japan/11096405/Japan-50-years-of-the-bullet-train.html.
