The Series Koki Container Carrier cars #100 and over all share several common features. They are all lower in floor height (100mm lower) than their predecessor Series Koki 5000 or over. The loadable weight is increased to 40.5 metric tons to carry ISO standard ocean fright containers, for which demand is on the rise. Also, to comply with high-speed train transport, these cars are designed to operate at the maximum speed of 110 km/hour.

About 3,000 cars Koki 104 were manufactured until its successor Koki 106 was produced, making Koki 104 one of the most popular container carriers in the JR Freight fleet. It still makes up the core of container transport in Japan today.

Kato plans to release the Container Carrier Koki 104 in two versions, one loaded with red 19D containers and the other loaded with blue 18D containers.
