Riding the Magnetic Floating Train in Japan

◆Linimo is the only maglev train in Japan. This train ran as a means of transportation system when EXPO 2005 AICHI, JAPAN was held.

    Another great video, Sir! The English voice reminds me of Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi from Star Trek TNG).
    Also, what in the world is the Auto-Translate (English) on about? It's almost as if it's a commentary from a different video!

    What is transportation like in my country? Adventure-like! Pre-pandemic it was always chaotic, unpredictable and there's no way to escape heavy traffic!

    Thank you for this video. I was already booked to visit Nagoya this month but of course the current crisis has not lifted yet. I was planning to visit the EXPO park and the Toyota Museum along this line.


    It is a good video. The other maglev train is the high speed, approx 600 km/hr bullet train. The project is already underway building the first stage between Tokyo and Nagoya.

    What is the speed of the train? No one on the train? Is this still in testing stage? This type of train in service in many cities in China.

    In Vancouver is the Skytrain using some of the same technology, being the linear induction motor propulsion but with steel steerable wheel that handle corners considerable quicker with only moderate noise. The switching seems to be an expensive proposition on this system much like monorails. Never the less pretty cool and the closest to the HSST ride I had at expo 86 in Vancouver on the 0.6 km track. 30 min cool down between runs.

    So much tecnology and materials for less speed. When someone imagine magnetic floating means very high speed, just what we dont see here.

    What a lovely relaxing video. Technology at its best. Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately, here in Greece we still need years to achieve this kind of transportation.

    Do you happen to know what causes the squeal at slow speeds? I'm guessing it's the electrical pickup shoe against the electrical rail since that should be the only contact point, but I honestly don't know.

    Also, I was surprised at what vibration did exist considering there should be no contact with the track (unless that was you shifting position with the camera).

    Japan has one of the best transportation systems in the world. Though the maglev train was around since 1984 in Birmingham, England, this video is refreshing.

    In times of depressing news and opinions, your travel videos, Kuga-san, are relief and most of all, inspiring. Thanks always.

    No putting on makeup on the train? Huh. The others I’ve all seen as rules before, but not that one. Interesting.

    (Also, a cool train.)
