The 381 series, which began operations as the world's first pendulum-type limited express train as the limited express "Shinano" in 1973, was electrified in October 1978 between Kisei Main Line Wakayama and Shingu. "Kuroshio" was converted to an electric train, and the 100 series with a non-penetrating front car appeared.
KATO will accurately commercialize the "Kuroshio" formation of the non-penetration type 381 series 100 series.
