    The new Hokkaido Shinkansen (Bullet train) linking Hakodate, Hokkaido with Shin Aomori, Honshu will open on March 26. This effectively links bullet train service on Japan's main island with Hokkaido to the north through a 149 km route that travels through the Seikan tunnel under the sea.

    A video showing the new train whooshing through snowy scenes on Hokkaido is worth watching:
