5 Things: Bullet Trains in Japan #infographic

It’s not often I can do a “5 Things”, and it’s even less often I can do an infographic… so much so this is my first. The 1st October will be the 50th anniversary of the first run of it (Wikipedia). The image used here, bullet train interior, can be found at my PhotoShelter portfolio.

Chinese Bullet Trains

Famously now, the Chinese bullet train is made of completely indigenous technology that was to based on the technological support provided from Canada or Japan. Apparently, the train that was designed and built in China based on Japanese bullet train, was not based on any Japanese technology. There is no likeness between the Chinese and Japanese trains at all.

PS: Is this train from Japan or China?
