On Tuesday, he took a ride on Japan's latest model of its high-speed bullet train, the Series E5 bullet train prototype, which features a massive 50-foot nose dubbed "arrow-line". Japan is up against China, France, Germany and other bidders as it seeks to sell its Shinkansen and magnetic train systems for Obama's high-speed rail project, which is backed by $13 billion in public funding, reported AFP.
