You can see a rare sight at Shin-Osaka station: a yellow bullet train. This is Dr. Yellow! He is a “doctor” because his job is to check the train track and help with maintenance and keep the trains running on time. Dr. Yellow pulls in at the station for 10 minutes which is ample time to check him out and take a picture. Of course, you might be fighting for space with the trainspotters…

Dr. Yellow runs about once every 10 days between Tokyo and Hakata and that is one of the many reasons Japanese bullet train have the best safety record on the planet.

Location : JR Shin-Osaka station
