Shinkansen Train Exhibition



Train! Train! Train! If Sheldon Cooper was there he would have stayed at Isetan forever! No kidding! Even I who is 15 this year (LOL!) got super excited looking at the trains!!


 KUALA LUMPUR, 16th February 2017: The Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Ministry of Japan together with Isetan The Japan Store today launched an exhibition on the Japanese Shinkansen at the Lot 10 Shopping Centre. The exhibition will run until 9th of March 2017 at Level 1 of Isetan The Japan Store.

 As the tender for the introduction of high-speed trains project between Malaysia and Singapore is expected to be opened this year, this event is held for creating awareness and knowledge of the exciting Shinkansen. This includes the highly-recognized safety features of the Shinkansen that will benefit Malaysians greatly.

The location of the exhibition, ISETAN The Japan Store, offers various Japanese products and experiences of Japanese culture from ancient traditions to latest technologies, and a wide range of fashion, lifestyle to food as a specialty store introducing authentic Japan.

 A train diorama, touted as one of the biggest in Asia will be featured during the exhibition, expressing the charm of the highly-advanced Shinkansen and the uniqueness of the Japanese railway system.

The exhibition will also offer Malaysian public first-hand view of a specially-designed miniature of the Shinkansen which will be showcased throughout the exhibition period. In addition, limited door gifts will be sold at the venue such as the Shinkansen Lunch Box and specially designed Tote Bags. Through this "Project Shinkansen", the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport and the Embassy of Japan in Malaysia hope to deepen the understanding amongst Malaysians of how the Japanese Shinkansen will contribute to the development of Malaysia and improvement of people’s life.

Get a glimpse of how the trains were displayed at the exhibition here:



The display was really classy and I just loved how they displayed it in a very fun way where the kids went all out checking them out. At the same time, the display impressed the adults because it was arranged in a very detailed, complex and a brilliant way.





Check my video to see how the trains appear from nowhere at the unexpected time. Well executed display!
