Original Metal Forming Process Technology Which Creates the Face of the Shinkansen Bullet Train with a Single Hammer
News Source: The Monodzukuri Nippon Grand Award

In 1964, the year in which the first Olympics in Asia were held, the Shinkansen bullet train, dubbed the “super-express train of dreams,” began operation. On October 10th of that year, the first 0 Series Shinkansen Hikari 1 left Tokyo station with its uniquely streamlined lead car. This face was created by the skilled craftsmen of Mr. Yamashita and his associates, with one hammer.

Since then, Yamashita Kogyosho has brought numerous trains into the world using their metal forming process technology, including the 700 Series Shinkansen, the main train of the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen lines, the Taiwan bullet train, and the experimental linear motorcar. The company’s technology and experience are reflected not only in the outside appearances of the trains but also in other areas here and there such as the roof of the driver’s compartment, the window frames, and driver’s seat accessories. These world class ultra-high-speed rail networks are still running today under the guard of the craftsmen’s artistry.
