In March 2013, the high-speed shinkansen train series-E6 made its debut as 'Super-Komachi', bound for Akita.
The distinctive face of the front car is a crimson red. To reduce noise when passing through tunnels, the lead
vehicle of the Series E6 features a nose 7 meters longer than that of the Series-E3 Komachi.
The height of the E6 is about 40 centimeters lower than that of the E3. In the operation between Tokyo
and Morioka, Iwate Prefecture, E6 cars will be connected with “Hayabusa” E5 cars of the Tohoku shinkansen-line.
Super-Komachi' E6 Shinkansen trains jointed with 'Hayabusa' will run at a maximum speed of 320 kms per hour
during the section of Tokyo and Morioka. This is one of the highest train speeds in the commercial railways,
the same as TGV in France. The JR-East railway company plans to increase its speed to 360 kms per hour by
2020. All Super-Komach shinkansen trains do not provide a smoking booth, and entirely smokefree.

Three major Japanese railway companies think that the smoking car and/or smoking-booth in a train are
the superb service to train passengers.
