The factory tour of Kinki Sharyo


JIDA West Bloc : Mobility Team:Shinei Ryo



Railroad vehicles are not only transportation vehicles, but also symbols of society. Kinki Sharyo believes that people-friendly designs are necessary for public transportation. In this tour, you will have the opportunity to see the manufacturing site of rolling stock, which you would not normally be able to see, and also hear about the design of rolling stock in Japan and overseas, as well as future research and development. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the future of large-scale mobility.
