Hopkins and the Bullet Train

Have you seen Hopkins?  
He's in Musashi-kosugi Stn., Kanagawa, Japan!

Hopkins watched the bullet train speed by!
This train is the Nozomi Shinkansen. Nozomi means HOPE. Shinkansen is the type of train. While it is called bullet train in English, Shinkansen would be literally translated is "new main train line".
