The 283 series is a pendulum-type limited express train of JR West that appeared in 1996 as "Super Kuroshio (Ocean Arrow)" and connects Shin-Osaka with Shingu and Shirahama in Wakayama Prefecture. Equipped with a controlled natural pendulum that is more stable than the conventional 381 series, it is possible to run at +35km/h on the Kisei Main Line, which has many small curve sections, and has improved comfort and shortened the required time.
There are two types of leading car design, non-streamlined type and streamlined type.
