Well, it looks like one of the symbols of Japan is getting a facelift. The Shinkansen (bullet train) is getting a new model – and what a beauty it is! One of the more recent ones looked like a running shoe, but this one looks more whale-shaped to me. Perhaps there’s something in the Japanese unconsciousness about this!

Anyway, this train will be able to move at a whopping 360 km/h! Pretty soon we’ll be breaking the sound barrier at ground level….
