Shinkansen in Taiwan


I just got this picture from my friend Koji Maruyama, who is visiting Taiwan for a conference at the moment.
The train is a Japanese shinkansen that runs on French tracks from Taipei in the north and Kaohsiung, the second largest city on the island in the south, in 90 minutes, with a maximum speed of 300 kph.
Taiwan’s high-speed train system incorporating Shinkansen bullet train technology for the first time outside Japan.
