"The bamboo at Yawata city, Kyoto prefecture, contributed greatly to his invention
of the electric light. In 1879, when he was 32 years old, he succeeded in manufacturing incande-scent electric light with the carbonized cotton filament covered with tar and soot which lasted for 45 hours.Edison believed that the electric light bulb must last more than 600 hours to be marketable. He obtained more than 6,000 materials for the filament from all over the world to test them.One day, he tested the bamboo of an oriental fan he found in the laboratory. The filament lasted 200 hours. Consequently, he began to concentrate his efforts to gather bamboos from all over the world and tested them.
He sent more than twenty researchers to many countries to find the best bamboo for the filament of the electric bulb. It costed him more than 100,000 dollars. He tested more than 1,200 species of the bamboos. ( Notes : This description may be an exaggeration. It is said that there are only 1,100 species of the bamboos in the world. In Japan, about 600 species of the bamboos
grow. )In Kyoto, Uemura Masanao, the first governor of the Kyoto Prefecture of the new Meiji government received him and suggested that the bamboos in Sagano and Yawata in Kyoto might be suitable for the filaments of electric bulbs.The electric bulb with the filament of the Ma-dake bamboo of Yawata lasted for 2450 hours. The Edison General Electric was founded to manufacture the electric light bulbs with the filaments made of the Yawata bamboos which were exported to many countries in the world during about 10 years until in 1894 when they were replaced by the cellulose filament bulbs.

A new Shinkansen bullet train being built to go into service on the East Japan line will travel at up to 320 kilometers per hour , making it the fastest rail service in Japan.
A new Shinkansen bullet train being built to go into service on the East Japan line will travel at up to 320 kilometers per hour , making it the fastest rail service in Japan. Test runs for the Series E5 train are planned for July 2009 ahead of its debut in spring 2011. The 10-car train will be initially operated at a top speed of 300 kph, ramping up to 320kmh by the end of March 2013.
JR East has released an artist's drawing of the Series E5 train, which is scheduled for launch in 2011 on the Tohoku Shinkansen Line between Tokyo and Aomori. The new model looks very similar to the N700 series but will feature the boldest nose design on a Bullet train to date, a 15-meter (50 feet) pointed front to further lower aerodynamic friction.
No technical details have been provided for the E5 but we can expect the same distributed electric motor layout as used in all Bullet trains to date, where each carriage has between three and four 300kw traction motors giving the train 10-12 Megawatts of total traction power. This allows a Bullet train to accelerate from standstill to 300km in less than two minutes.
Test runs will begin in July 2009 ahead of its debut in spring 2011. The 10-car train will be initially operated at a top speed of 300 kph, and will be raised to 320 kph by the end of March 2013. The company plans to produce 59 of the E5 trains by the end of fiscal 2015.
