Train lines in Japan - Akita Shinkansen

Akita Shinkansen
秋田新幹線

The Akita Shinkansen is a JR East-operated 'mini-shinkansen' line, connecting Tokyo Station and Akita Station in Akita Prefecture.

The trains actually use the tracks of the Tohoku Shinkansen from Tokyo Station to Morioka Station; Tazawako-sen tracks from Morioka Station to Omagari Station; and the Ou Honsen tracks from Omagari Station to Akita Station.

It is referred to as a 'mini-shinkansen' due to the face that it shares tracks with those regular trains.
