    Background: SYNOPSIS: "For many years there's been one enduring symbol of Japanese technology that has inspired administration at home and abroad. Every day it goes five times the distance around the earth but never leaves Japan....Now, after a long and difficult period of development, more Japanese have been placed within its reach. This wonder, of course, is the 'Shinkansen' - better known as the Bullet Train."
