Travel faster on Tohoku Shinkansen!

From July 9th, travel time on the Tohoku Shinkansen (bullet train) will be much shorter. As it partially resumed the speed, required time between Shin-Aomori and Tokyo has been reduced by half an hour.  Timetable is also revised and 17 trains added to the group of Shinkansen arriving to and departing from Tokyo station, which makes the total 161 per day, almost the same as before the earthquake.
