About the Shinkansen

Reliability  0.6 minutes/train


Punctuality is also a significant feature of the Tokaido Shinkansen. The average delay per train throughout the year is 0.6 minutes.
While operating 323 ultra-high speed services a day that run at 270km/h we have maintained punctuality as well as a perfect safety record with no accidents resulting in fatalities since the commencement of commercial operation.
The following introduces the efforts we are engaged in to ensure this reliability.
