  • I hope they've tested it well against wandering wildlife getting on track. 10cm isn't much clearance. And ice.

  • Why build to go faster? Answer: to get there faster, nothing more. Why build to go faster? Because we can. They build to go faster because they are arrogant, ignorant, because they have the power to and are stupid. Watch and see when by the numbers people start dying.

  • This is ridiculous. Here in the UK the government is pushing an HS2 railway project which will be for a traditional line between London and Birmingham and then Manchester, which will be only several minutes quicker than the existing line, will cost over £100 Billion (that's probably in the range of $130 billion) and will not be completed for the next 20-30 years 😵

  • Every western creator should be study and modify their knowledge to Asia especially oriental music. B.G.M of this footage is good example of that.

  • Japan has been testing the Maglev since in the 70s and I lived in Japan in the 70s and 80s believe me this thing won't happen. How long are you going to test? For another 100 yrs? China already has one in operation in Shanghai and recently revealed a prototype that can run at more 600kmh or more because China has political will to do it. Japan can test this bs all they want until kingdom comes but unless the train is actually in service, it's just for a big show case, charade so that the railway company can get more mon y from government.

  • "Bullit Trains" which are more LOOSE bullet wheel crafts, never implamented a close wrap wheel to prevent derailing, which caused insane casualties of carts wrapping around foundations like metalic duck tap, they could've made the classic rail into a maglev twin mini slid & wheel ready close mount, the cost wouldn't be so staggering then the pit rail SCMaglev.

  • Fun to see a Danish constructed IC-3 running in Israel as a "ctachup" to normal highspeed. it struggles to get over 200 km/h, and the Israelis have now returned it! :)

  • And America still doesn’t have any form of a high speed rail system🤦🏽‍♂️

  • Lol "Chuo" (pronounced choo-oh), not "chow". 2:28 And the symbol for kilometres per hour is km/h, not "KPH" (kelvin-petahenries).

  • They implemented Wakanda Tech

    • "The maglev train can go only every 10 minutes unlike the traditional bullet train that can go every three minutes" - Me crying silently in German The train I have to take only comes every 60 minutes and sometimes slows down to 50 km/h. :(

  • Meanwhile in the UK. people fight to the death over the height of privet hedges?

  • As a Chinese, I love that old Japanese Train-robot cartoon. We can build good high speed train too, but somehow I always prefer Japanese trains for stylishness. Man they are so cool!

    • One of the things I appreciate most about Japan is their willingness to build these insane investments into infrastructure.

    • One reason why this line would be super beneficial, is because you could live in a cheaper city (I’m pretty sure Nagoya and Osaka are relatively cheaper), and still get a job in Tokyo, where most of them are located. This would help quite a bit

  • Why 64bn is chump change to big joe and the democrats. They could build 100 of those trains and have change left over.

    • Here comes Politics; No wonder the US is falling behind. UNITE!!!!!!

    • I absolutely love trains, the only thing stopping me from taking them more in the UK is that the ticket prices are insane, if they were affordable I'd ride them all the time

  • What song plays at 4:20 to 725?? Anybody know the Artist/Song tracklist for this video?

  • In Japan, about 70% is mountainous and there is an earthquake, so it takes a huge amount of time and cost to build.

  • very good

  • Building underground will be way too expensive and also very risky in the long term

  • Me watching this *cries in American*

  • Fuck enviromental concerns, this is a problem for construction and developimg projects everywhere. The planet will not die over constuections, this is just leftist bullshit

    • "The maglev train can go only every 10 minutes unlike the traditional bullet train that can go every three minutes" - Me crying silently in German The train I have to take only comes every 60 minutes and sometimes slows down to 50 km/h. :(

  • Just wondering how many birds and animals is this going kill! How much damage to the train? Should have tracks covered. We need this in Australia we have such vast distances to travel.

  • I'll take unpopular opinion here but I think it gonna bring very little to the economy. Connecting major city is impactful when it's affordable. This maglev thing is not gonna be affordable by the majority to commute frequently. Considering that there already is pretty good train line it will give very little additional economical benefit of what's already there.

  • Good luck to japan people

  • It was written, mountains will be removed out of there place. By Nicki Ric'kett

  • More earthquakes in the making creating that monster machine makes it real obvious. Wow. Physics By Nicki Ric'kett

  • It was a British invention , Like most modern inventions ,

    • ha, ha, ha, ha.....

    • i’m aussie and the trains in australia are awful so it was incredible when i went to japan and rode on a shinkansen from tokyo to kyoto. it was so smooth, the interior was really nice, and the views were beautiful. i hope to go back !!

  • Even if it dose succeed our failure of a nation transport wise here in the USA still barely uses even standard bullet rains. I hate driving, car dealers, and insurance!!!!! I always wonder when these video talk about us having a love affair with cars "who are they talking about?". Most Americans I know hate car insurances, really really hate dealerships, and hate other drivers. The only people who like cars in the USA and hate public transport are politicians. They just get to fine us over everything by using faulty red light systems and cameras. Don't even get me started on the car owner taxes some states have in place when they give you no option but to own a car. I wish we had bullet trains to every city so badly!!!!

  • Meanwhile, the California high speed rail that started construction in 2008 has like 10 miles of track constructed...

    • Japan is like 100 years ahead with trains, while Europe is debating if their old trains are slow enough "for safety" etc and no innovation in sight

    • The UK is spending more than double that amount with HS2 to have trains that run at the same speed Japans trains were in 1958 Let that sink in.

  • "China doesn't need to buy Japan's [maglev] technology and the rest of the world is still playing catch up." Yeah, China doesn't need to buy Japan's maglev technology because they bought Germany's maglev tech and are building from that. Who's playing catch-up again? Come on, B1M. One trip to Wikipedia would've told you.

    • Other people complaining about their awful train experience, Meanwhile Indians: haha that's cute

    • The problem with the German maglev in China is because it costs too much to build and maintain with all the computers.

  • Cool, but how much the ticket costs? I'm guessing it will be very expensive to travel such maglev train :(

  • Put more ads you greedy mug why not, I’ve told CS-tv to not recommend your channel anymore well done.

  • The dunderheads here in North America would rather spend money on airports than high speed train systems! 40 yrs they have been talking about putting in High speed electric trains between Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa here in Canada. All just hot air and talk!

  • cries in Philippines

  • shejule...

    • "It'll move at twice the speed and cut times in half" I did the math for a few hours and I can confirm that it checks out

    • i’m aussie and the trains in australia are awful so it was incredible when i went to japan and rode on a shinkansen from tokyo to kyoto. it was so smooth, the interior was really nice, and the views were beautiful. i hope to go back !!

  • Too bad the politicians in here in California keep stealing all the money for our hi speed rail program.they are destroying everything.you can’t even get a used beater car here anymore and all the criminals are stealing our catylitic converters.so looks like the greyhound bus is our future if we are lucky….

  • Hopefully they get it done!

  • its called chuo why do you say ciau?

    • "It'll move at twice the speed and cut times in half" I did the math for a few hours and I can confirm that it checks out

  • I'm a regular John from city Kansas. I love burgers, soda and my native country very much, but I do not understand our government. Everyone says America is a great country, and I look around and see who else is a great China. China has a very strong government and economy. Chinese resident is a great man. And the greatest leader Xi. Thick hair, strong grip, jade rod! We would have such a leader instead of sleeping in negotiations, rare hair, soft pickle, bad memory old Beadon. Punch!

  • it's pronounced 'chuu-o' not 'chou'

  • Great video. Videos like this make school obsolete since they teach from 1950's books.

  • I'm envious of other countries who develop mass transit on scale like this. I don't know how the risks are for the environment, but it is an impressive feat to scale those distances with tunneling.

  • japan is amazing when it comes to technology..

  • Meanwhile in America: We don't even replace/repair bridges until they collapse & kill people. Then we spend as little as possible to get the worst results. 'MERICA F YA! Seriously fuck living in the U.S so many idiots don't even "believe" in demonstrably proven science. The U.S as a country is just one big Multi-Level Marketing Scheme (aka Pyramid Scheme)

  • Here in america we spend a trillion dollars a year on the military. 70 billion is nothing, especially when it will actively benefit the lives of everyday people

  • Japan is advanced and peaceful because they are free from piecefools!

  • Welcome To Uzbekistan Tashkent City...🇺🇿🇺🇿

  • In India trains run at 10km/h on a good day

  • Japan is smart enough not to invest in the Hyperloop. Just to inform you, I already know that they were already invested into Maglev when the Hyperloop first came out.

  • What I’ve learned on this channel: Whatever estimate the construction people give you? Imagine at least quadruple that much.

  • Live Long Japan ...The Great Country

    • One of the things I appreciate most about Japan is their willingness to build these insane investments into infrastructure.

    • One reason why this line would be super beneficial, is because you could live in a cheaper city (I’m pretty sure Nagoya and Osaka are relatively cheaper), and still get a job in Tokyo, where most of them are located. This would help quite a bit

  • 2.5 hours mean 2 and 50 min . if you want to tell 2 and a half hours its a 2 and 30 min not 50 !!!! 60 min in 1 hour not 100 min.

    • i’m aussie and the trains in australia are awful so it was incredible when i went to japan and rode on a shinkansen from tokyo to kyoto. it was so smooth, the interior was really nice, and the views were beautiful. i hope to go back !!

  • Guys Any idea of Chinese fast train?

    • The UK is spending more than double that amount with HS2 to have trains that run at the same speed Japans trains were in 1958 Let that sink in.

    • They have a mockup of a maglev they hope will go faster than Japans in 5 years which i doubt due to it only having 1 cm clearance. They need to work with Japan to design an international standard guideway that can take ISO carriages and overnight container trains. We do not want to replecate the joke where every state had different gauges.

  • Meanwhile i had to leave the trainstion and take an uber yesterday to work cus it was 30 mins till the next m train smh

  • but why? isn't it more beneficial for a country to invest in developing highly sophisticated virtual environments that allow people to cooperate seamlessly between major cities while building a high-speed freight network? I mean what's the need to build such extremely expensive passenger trains?

  • “chao” shinkinsen lol… it’s pronounced chu-ou. Chuou meaning central.

  • if only we had this in canada, fucking trash cans is all we get

  • Now if only we could paint that Demon Slayer train decal on it....

  • What a fantasy, too much anime going on there.

    • "The maglev train can go only every 10 minutes unlike the traditional bullet train that can go every three minutes" - Me crying silently in German The train I have to take only comes every 60 minutes and sometimes slows down to 50 km/h. :(

  • What a waste of Helium. We have a very limited supply of Helium, and we can't make it. Any Helium that gets into the air is basically gone, because it ends up leaving Earth's atmosphere. Helium should be used very sparingly.

  • Okey Japan 🇯🇵

  • Meanwhile here in the US we have thousands of cars always stuck in traffic and terrible air pollution. Gas prices at $4, yippee. FYI the US spends on average $250b on the military a year.

    • One of the things I appreciate most about Japan is their willingness to build these insane investments into infrastructure.

  • Commuting is just stupid, people need to start living their everyday lives where they live instead of bouncing back and forwards wasting the earths precious stored energy, this is the real reason why the oil will soon run out.

  • Gamble??!!!! They just do the job done like a boss no question asked …

  • Meanwhile Pakistan is struggling to make railway tracks capable enough to carry trains from 80km/hr to 160km/hr. Project is still in pipeline😛

    • The UK is spending more than double that amount with HS2 to have trains that run at the same speed Japans trains were in 1958 Let that sink in.

    • I absolutely love trains, the only thing stopping me from taking them more in the UK is that the ticket prices are insane, if they were affordable I'd ride them all the time

  • Lmao that's like a train VTEC

    • i’m aussie and the trains in australia are awful so it was incredible when i went to japan and rode on a shinkansen from tokyo to kyoto. it was so smooth, the interior was really nice, and the views were beautiful. i hope to go back !!

  • Meanwhile radiation fucking hilarious

  • Yet California failed horribly 😂

  • Then there is my country where car’s tire would levitate to avoid pot holes on the road.

  • 5:40 “making it one of the most expensive Megaprojects ever undertaken in the country.” *Simon has entered the chat*

  • From what I gather on the web, for Maglev, Japan uses helium to cool magnets to -269°K, whereas China will use nitrogen to cool to about -200°K.

  • China doesn’t need Japanese tech or other new innovative tech as it only steals tech through its 1000 or million talents initiative

    • "It'll move at twice the speed and cut times in half" I did the math for a few hours and I can confirm that it checks out

  • In Pakistan we have more speedy train’s believe me !!

  • 1. Japan is releasing radioactive material into the ocean…. 2. The trains will work but if there is a solar storm from the sun or any type of human electric magnetic interference… even bad weather… will disrupt the entire system and cause the train to either not go at all or crash all together. It’s also not healthy for the environment…

  • ほへー、勉強になった

  • oh god its chuuo not chaooo! piss pronouncing foreign names again.

  • Springfield has a monorail

  • Who do you know that works in Rome and lives in Berlin or works in Paris and lives in London etc? Thats what trains like that are not needed in Europe or USA.

  • Imagine investing in a dying country.

  • Great public transportation and city park, some of us dying to have those in our country

  • Western countries need to catch up man..

  • Trains in japan is absolutely awesome, timely, fast and efficient. Well done

  • Underground? They're going to wake Godzilla.

  • Everybody gangsta till the train takes off the ground

    • "The maglev train can go only every 10 minutes unlike the traditional bullet train that can go every three minutes" - Me crying silently in German The train I have to take only comes every 60 minutes and sometimes slows down to 50 km/h. :(

  • Did you plagiarize the script from Mustard channel? This sounds exactly the same with without the animations

  • How will a country "grow" by moving ppl around 2 h faster from a to b🤔. I realy dont know. What about the other transportation and other citys? Mega citys and coutry depopulation, dependency on view transportation lines and what about the costs (for pasangers and energy/envierment).

  • US, build more roads don’t maintain old roads.

  • Magnets I've heard our Govt won't allow it's citizens to experiment with them. Citizens with engineering degrees. Anyone else have info in this?

  • Are we not gonna talk about how Hyperloop is gonna make this train obsolete?

    • i’m aussie and the trains in australia are awful so it was incredible when i went to japan and rode on a shinkansen from tokyo to kyoto. it was so smooth, the interior was really nice, and the views were beautiful. i hope to go back !!

  • Japan is also changing India in area of trains.

  • Man Japan is so impressive... I wanna go there 🥺

  • When is the U.S going to make something ground breaking that is actually beneficial and affordable to the rest of the country? Seriously it seems everything “ground breaking” is either a new phone or something only rich people can use.

  • A country like Japan has multiple economic centres south of Tokyo so there is always a strategic case for improving transport links . In Britain High speed 2 will connect London with Birmingham and northern cities all of which are dwarfed by London's economic output since the UK is now a service and knowledge based economy. Throw in remote working and the business case starts to evaporate. London to Birmingham will see a 40 min reduction in journey time. I am sure similar time savings could have been achieved with a combination of ETMS and quadrupling the line certain sections into Birmingham at a fraction of the cost of a new high speed line

    • I loved travelling on these when I went on holiday to Japan. They're so quiet and efficiently run. It was actually quite soothing.

  • How I wish US invest more in public transportation.

    • I absolutely love trains, the only thing stopping me from taking them more in the UK is that the ticket prices are insane, if they were affordable I'd ride them all the time

  • cs-tv.org/tv/video-XcvZ-I4YvLU.html cs-tv.org/tv/video-XcvZ-I4YvLU.html

  • 3:29 Maglev kicks in yo!!!

  • I'm excited for the future when it comes to these new methods of transportation, the hyperloop is an amazing idea as well. Though I think this project is more manageable in expense cost due to it not requiring to be in a vacuum tube. Yet still managing to shave time off of the ordinary travel times of other modern day transport. It will be an amazing era to experience a world where you could just get on a transportation system that could take you anywhere in the world in a reasonable amount of hours.

  • While I believe in cooperation between countries to develop a modified Japanese maglev that has an international standard guideway for ISO carriages and overnight container trains, competition between 10 separate contractors from the ten launch shafts between Parrahub and Canberra would not only keep the cost down but allow smaller players to innovate.

  • No, I don't want to make any more quarters in Cuba. Thanks anyways..

    • I absolutely love trains, the only thing stopping me from taking them more in the UK is that the ticket prices are insane, if they were affordable I'd ride them all the time

  • The „old“ NoZoMi was already world class.

  • Extremely debatable to say the least. Reason why china is doing so much is because they have so many people and No Infrastructure to worry about. They are carefully planning where to go, because after, they'll be stuck with it. Also, most of their economic growth is in construction, and huge bubble in the housing market. I'll scream for joy when that collapses
