Japanese railway operator East Japan Railway Company (JR East) is testing the use of high-speed passenger trains to transport freshly caught fish, the Railway Gazette reports .

The three-day trial began on August 26th. Fish caught off the coast near Ishinomaki early in the morning were dispatched from Sendai at 10:41 and delivered to the Japanese capital at 12:48. The catch was intended, among other things, for restaurants in a shopping complex at Tokyo Station.

During transportation, car number 1 was closed for passengers. It housed transportable containers with fish directly on the seats.

This is not the first time that food has been transported on the high-speed rail network. Shinkansen trains without passengers have been carrying fresh fish, fruits and vegetables between Niigata and Tokyo since 17 January.

As “Whistle” reported, JR East uses animals to lure passengers on unpopular routes. Cats and dogs are appointed as excursion station chiefs, which allows them to live there.
