The Akita Shinkansen Komachi debuted in 1997, running from Tokyo to Akita with stops along the way such as Sendai and Morioka. Interspersed along the route between Morioka and Akita are many sightseeing spots, including Lake Tazawa, known for its clear water, and Kakunodate (also in Akita Prefecture), known for its wonderful cherry blossom trees.
Trains between Tokyo and Morioka are coupled with an 10-car train.
The public telephone service is available between Tokyo and Morioka Stations.
