Only 2 left in stock


The E353 series, which began commercial operation in December 2017, is the successor to the E257 and E351 series, which were previously used on the Azusa and Kaiji trains. Its main feature is that it uses an air spring type car body tilting device and has the same curve passing performance as the E351 series. The Alpine White car body with the Azusa Violet stripe is a simple and powerful design that exudes a sense of speed, and truly symbolizes the next generation of limited express trains. It is currently in service on the Azusa, Kaiji, and Fuji Kaiyu trains.

Equipped with KATO's original car body tilting mechanism, you can enjoy realistic curve passing scenes that are close to the real thing.


This basic set may be supplemented with the 10-1835 and 10-1836 auxiliary/add-on sets.

Main Features

- E353 series "Azusa / Kaiji"
- Matsumoto Vehicle Center S203 + S103 formation is commercialized. The front shape full of speed and the powerful design paint color are realistically reproduced like the real vehicle.
- KATO's original car body tilt mechanism is adopted. The car body is tilted to realistically reproduce the realistic curve passing scene approaching the real vehicle.
- Antennas on the roof are already installed, the cooler reproduces the appearance with the central main body part of stainless steel unpainted and the front and rear covers painted silver.
- The adoption of a slotless motor realizes even smoother and quieter running.
- The intermediate coupling part adopts a body-mounted close-coupled coupler close-coupled type (without hook). The front part of the 1st and 12th cars adopts a dummy coupler that reproduces the covered form. The front part of the 3rd and 4th cars adopts a body-mounted close-coupled coupler close-coupled type (without hook) that reproduces the electric coupling part.
- Headlights / taillights light up. All five headlights on each side are lit.
Seats in the car are reproduced in purple for normal cars and brown for green cars. Car number, no smoking sign, wheelchair sign printed. Destination sticker included. Includes a wide variety of destinations such as "Azusa", "Kaiji", and "Fuji Kaiyu".
If you collect all three sets, all 12 cars can be stored in the bookcase of the additional set and the attached set. The bookcase of the attached set has been changed to be able to store the basic set (4 cars). It can be carried even in a compact 4+3 car formation.
