Japan's transport systems

The transportation system in Japan is modern and effiecent, serving a population of over 100 million people everyday. Japan is also home to the first true use of high-speed rail travel. Called "Shinkansen" or bullet trains, these railway vehicles can easily reach speeds in excess of 250 kilometres per hour.

Air and sea travel are also important aspects of the Japanese economy, providing almost all trade requirements of the country. Japan is also the world's leader in ship-building, specifically that of merchant ships and giant oil tankers.
