Japan PM takes US ambassador on 314-mph diplomatic date

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy inspect a magnetically levitated train system during their trip to the Yamanashi Experiment Center in Tsuru, central Japan on April 12, 2014Tsuru (Japan) (AFP) – Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took US ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy on a test ride of Japan’s super-fast magnetic train on Saturday, showcasing the “Maglev” technology Tokyo hopes to sell to its ally. “I hope ambassador Kennedy will enjoy the full package of Japan — the blizzard of cherry blossoms, Mount Fuji and the state-of-the-art technology,” a relaxed-looking Abe said ahead of the ride. As the distinctive white and pink petals of the blossom swirled in the breeze, the pair boarded at the Yamanashi Maglev Test Line near Mount Fuji. Maglev, short for magnetic levitation after the magnets that propel the vehicle forward in place of traditional wheels and axles, is a contender for President Barack Obama’s multi-billion-dollar national high-speed rail project.
