E1 Series). They operate on the Tohoku, Joetsu and Hokuriku Shinkansen. E4 trains feature double-decker cars to accommodate additional
commuter traffic around Tokyo and other urban areas.

trainset in the world, carrying a total of 1,634 passengers. A total of 26 units were built between 1997 and 2003. As with the earlier
E1 series trains, maximum speed is 240 kmh.
