>Seafood on the Shinkansen
日本新干线开始运海鲜
Since the number of passengers on the Shinkansen has dropped significantly due to the new coronavirus, JR East has begun an experiment to transport fresh seafood from Miyagi prefecture to Tokyo for the first time using the seats on the Shinkansen.
由于新冠病毒的影响,日本新干线的乘客人数大幅下降,JR东日本公司开始了一项试验,首次利用新干线上的座位将新鲜海鲜从宫城县运送到东京。
On August 26, squirts and oysters from Miyagi prefecture, which were landed on the morning of the same day, were transported to the Tohoku Shinkansen departing Sendai Station before 11:00 am.
8月26日上午11点前,来自宫城县的海蛸和牡蛎被运往东北新干线,驶离仙台站。这些海鲜都是当天上午捕捞的。
The Shinkansen arrived at Tokyo Station in about two hours, and was served as sashimi and vinegared food at the seafood restaurant on the premises after 2:00 pm.
大约两小时后,这辆新干线就抵达了东京站,下午2点后,站内的海鲜餐厅就开始供应生鱼片和醋味食品。
According to the fishermen who participated in the initiative, when it comes to transportation by truck, it often arrives in Tokyo the next day, but if you use the Shinkansen, you can shorten the time until it is provided at restaurants by a whole day.
据参与这一试验的渔民说,如果用卡车运输,海鲜通常会在第二天到达东京,但如果使用新干线,可以在一天之内就运输到餐馆并端上餐桌。
Due to the impact of the new coronavirus, the number of passengers on the Tohoku Shinkansen is only 30% of the same period last year as of last week.
受新冠疫情影响,截至上周,日本东北新干线上的乘客数量仅为去年同期的30%。
For this reason, JR East is extensively considering measures to compensate for the decline in revenues from the railway business.
为此,JR东日本公司正考虑采取多种措施弥补铁路业务收入的下降。
