Quick Overview of Nozomi Train in Japan

The Shinkansen Nozomi trains are famous for providing passengers with the best onboard amenities and a smooth ride. These Japanese bullet trains offer two classes of travel (ordinary car and green car) and passengers are offered a very smooth ride as well as fantastic onboard amenities. It is common for first-class passengers to take advantage of cushy adjustable seats with plenty of legroom, Wi-Fi connection, food trolleys, and in-seat reading lights on a train.​
