Central Japan Railway Co. (JR Central) and the JICC are proud to host Mr. Masahiro "Mark" Nakayama for a talk about the brief history of technology behind the Japanese high-speed rail system and JR Central's involvement in the high-speed rail projects developing in the United States.
As transit agencies and technologies evolve, interest in bringing high-speed rail capabilities to the United States has been increasing. JR Central, operates the Tokaido Shinkansen and has been at the forefront of railway developments, including the new MagLev (magnetic levitation) train. JR Central has also been working closely with groups in America to increase Japan-US cooperation and bring high-speed trains to America, as states like Maryland look for faster rail links and more advanced technology.
