The Tanigawa 401 bullet train, bound for Echigo Yuzawa on the Joetsu Shinkansen Line, was forced to cancel its departure from Tokyo Station Tuesday morning after the English word "Hack," spelled out in red, white and blue colors, was found painted on the side of car No. 2 over 4-5 meters. Some 500 people were inconvenienced, according to media reports.
According to the Shizuoka Shimbun, the discovery was made around 5 a.m. at the JR marshalling yard in Tokyo's Kita Ward while the train was undergoing a routine pre-run inspection. The Tokyo Metropolitan Police department is investigating it as a case of property damage.© Japan Today
