Set to be introduced in late 2015, these trains will also experiment with LCD-screen advertisements, both still and moving images, with hanging and posted paper ads done away with completely.

This new kind of advertising may be only temporary, with the JR saying it’s only for testing.

The Yamanote Line is one of the greatest methods of transportation to travel around the Tokyo metropolis with your Japan Rail Pass or JR East Pass.

It will take you to places like Tokyo & Shinagawa Stations for connection to the shinkansen, or famous neighborhoods such as Akihabara, Harajuku, Shinjuku, and Shibuya.
