    I'd love to see some routes in Japan.

    Of course, there are the Shinkansen HSTs, but also conventional lines in and out of Tokyo, that would be interesting to see. Tokyo to the North Aomori is one idea, or another idea Tokyo to the West, Kyoto or further. 01_A.jpg

    The route would come with the Shinkansen, a slower locomotive and a freight locomotive, much as the GWE pack has the same variety (high speed, standard, freight)

    (As an extra, there is also a monorail from Haneda airport into Tokyo)

    We'd love to explore japan in TSW eventually, so we won't rule out the possibility of it appearing one day!

    Thanks for your suggestion

    - Jay

    Would be great to see Japanese routes in Train Sim World maybe the Chuo or San'yo main lines.

    There are loads of great trains, locos, and routes in Japan. From Hokkaido to Okinawa, Japan has more varied and unusual trains than just about anywhere. From the smallest branch line or tram to the shinkansen, from subways to tourist trains, from locals to expresses, Japan has more varied trains than any place I've seen. Watch a few episodes of the following: Japan Railway Journal https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/vod/japanrailway/2049041/ and Train Cruise https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/vod/traincruise/

    Thanks for sharing those links! I'm going to Japan in January '18 (one of those once in a lifetime opportunities) and will be taking quite a few different trains while I'm there.

    To have a Japanese route available for TSW would be great. I am still with TS2017 (with a bunch a route packs that'll keep me busy for a while), but a Japanese route might be just the thing that'd push me to get TSW as well. I've been living in Japan for close to ten years now, and I can tell you that trains are immensely popular hobby in Japan. As mentioned in messages above, there is a near-endless supply of interesting train/route options.
    Nox, which part(s) of Japan you'll be visiting, if I may ask? I may be able you help and give some tips if you have any questions.

    EchoKilo I've got (a measly!) four full days in Tokyo. We're staying quite near the Skytree. We've not planned the itinerary yet (we're going to Shinjuku one evening, that's pretty much all we decided so far) - I'd love to hear any suggestions, especially for places we can visit outside Tokyo that won't take more than a day! Please send me a PM so we don't take over the thread. Thanks!
