For decades, Japan has used high-speed rail technology, but it is now time to replace this technology with a modern one that keeps pace with the times, and it may well be ahead of it too.
In short, the new technology is high-speed trains that fly through the air and do not run on traditional railways, according to a Turkish newspaper, Hurriyet, on Saturday.
The new technology called "Maglev" is seen as the future of trains in the coming decades.
The train can reach speeds of 600 km per hour, and does not use conventional wheels, but rather flies over the ground at an altitude of 10 centimeters in the air.
On the side walls of the new train lines, there are magnetic coils, which push the magnet on the train and help it stay suspended in the air, and prevent it from slipping.
Heavy friction on conventional rail trains reduces their speed while moving over bars.
The new technology is slated to enter service in 2027, and project owners say they have completed the stages of technology development, leaving only search for land to implement the project.
Japan's central rail company says it has agreed to fund the project.
It is scheduled to connect the first line between Tokyo and the city of Nagoya, which is located south of the Japanese capital.
According to a Japanese official, the train speed reached 600 km in the tests, but it will not exceed 500 during the flights that carry people, indicating that the priority is for safety, not speed.
