TOKYO, Nov. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Central Japan Railway Company (JR Central) and West Japan Railway Company (JR West) have released a new free smartphone app, the Tokaido Sanyo Shinkansen Reservation App, through which users may purchase tickets for the Tokaido Sanyo bullet train line, Japan's main artery connecting Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Hakata and other destinations.

For travelers and businesspeople visiting Japan, the Shinkansen offers high speed and convenience. Trains run frequently and on time. Seating is readily available, and travel is comfortable, safe and enjoyable. The Shinkansen is an efficient and reliable choice for long distances as well as short day trips.
