We'll also get the chance to watch the 7-Minute Miracle, the term used to describe the super-speedy teams of cleaners that keep the interiors of JR East Shinkansen bullet trains spick and span for the next group of passengers. In 2016, Harvard Business School students even began to study the 7-Minute Miracle bullet train cleaners as part of their regular curriculum.

The cleaning staff of the Shinkansen, no matter how dirty the toilet, finish work perfectly within seven minutes. Cleaning is one of the essence of Japanese culture and education linked to good conduct, correct posture, and mental preparation. Even after losing the game against Belgium at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Japanese supporters who cheered at the local site picked up garbage and cleaned up the audience seats.

Let's visit Tokyo station to see Tokaido, Sanyo, Tohoku, Yamagata, Akita, Hokkaido, Joetsu, Hokuriku Shinkansen. I will provide informative details about Shinkansen.We'll also get the chance to watch "7-Minute Miracle" on the Shinkansen.
