Actually, on this weekend, I have plan to climb up Minami Alps but the weather is not suitable for trekking. Then I change my direction directly from Tokyo to Nagoya.
My destination is 24 minutes on Aonami line from Nagoya to Kinjo-futo station. Nagoya SCMAGLEV and Railway Park where I really need to visit for long time before I’ve been to Saitama Railway Museum is located.
Nagoya SCMAGLEV and Railway Park is the museum showing my most interesting train which they call JR-Maglev or Linear. This train can speed up to 581km/hr with the power of Maglev Linear Motor. JR have done testing it last year and plan to make it on partial service on 2020, half service on 2027 between Tokyo – Nagoya and full service on 2045 between Tokyo – Osaka (quite long (- -‘)).
Actually, JR(Japan Rail) have started this project and tested since 1995 till finished testing last year. The thing is Japanese are surely waiting to ride on this train in 2020 also full service on 2045 that I can imagine how they are excited.
Nagoya SCMAGLEV and Railway Park not only have this special Maglev train, I also can enjoy the history of other trains like Shinkansen series 0 to 700 and many of classic railcars.
Nagoya SCMAGLEV and Railway Park is also my recommendation for museum lovers who travel to Japan. If you love museum and if you love train, you must visit Nagoya SCMAGLEV and Railway Park and also Saitama Railway Museum.
I wish on 2045 with my age that I still can catch Maglev Linear train speed to travel from Kanto to Kansai joyfully 😀
