The inauguration of High-Speed Rail (HSR) in Japan, over 40 years ago, created a new transport network, which since became the main mode of transport for most long-distance journeys in that country. In Europe, the HSR services which were launched about 20 years later were capable of running also on the conventional rail network, but nevertheless also created a new transport network. The new transport network is unique in many respects and has important and specific spatial effects, on the territories where it traverses, as well as those it bypass or haven't yet reached.
