"(CNN) — Early on October 1, 1964, a sleek blue and white train slid effortlessly across the urban sprawl of Tokyo, its elevated tracks carrying it south toward the city of Osaka and a place in the history books."
I wonder if Japan will ever revive plans for undersea tunnels to Russia , and Korea?
I think Russia is more likely, especially if climate change opens up a Arctic route to Europe, and possibly the Americas.
