@@@@
The Express Train "Asama" - named after a local mountain - began operating between the Tokyo metropolis and Nagano with an upgraded exterior and interior in July, 1990. Its new exterior had dark green and gray horizontal lines painted on the light gray body with new logo marks and letterings.
The new appearance of the updated Series 189 "Asama" was popular since its debut, but when the Hokuriku-Shinkansen Bullet Train was put in operation to Nagano, the conventional express was taken over by the faster bullet train, even relinquishing the popular nickname "Asama" over to the latter.
