(Top) It's "Komachi"
This Shinkansen is possible to run Shinkansen lines and conventional lines. It runs snow area in Tohoku region(north side of Tokyo) , but because of the technology that melt the snow, it is possible to run through even in heavy snow!

East i

(Bottom) It's "East i"
This Shinkansen was made in order to check rails and technology. So we cannot ride this Shinkansen. Since it stops very little in stations, we can only see it very rarely!
