Take a trip into the future on Japan Air Lines' HSST (High Speed Surface Train). As you travel along the 450-metre demonstration track, enjoy a 1000-square-metre diorama of a futuristic city. The HSST floats on electro-magnetic modules and can safely and efficiently transport large numbers of passengers, while ensuring speed, economy, comfort and cleanliness.

Three HSST test vehicles have been developed to commute between airports and cities. These vehicles have already reached top speeds of over 300 kilometres per hour. The HSST demonstration vehicle at EXPO 86 carries 40 passengers.
