The 0 series (which were not originally classified, as there was no need to distinguish classes of trainset until later[2]) entered service with the start of Tōkaidō Shinkansen
operations in October 1964. These units were white with a blue stripe
along the windows and another at the bottom of the car body, including
the front pilot.

Unlike previous Japanese trains (except for some trains running
on standard gauge sections on the Ou Main Line and Tohoku Main Line) the
Tōkaidō Shinkansen and all subsequent Shinkansen lines are 1,435 mm (4 ft 8+1⁄2 in) standard gauge between the rails. The trains were powered by 25 kV AC electricity at 60 Hz with all axles of all cars powered by 185 kW traction motors, giving a 220 km/h (140 mph) operation top speed.

The original trains were introduced as 12-car sets, with some
sets later lengthened to 16 cars. Later, shorter trains of six cars and
even four cars were assembled for lesser duties. Production of 0 series
units continued from 1963 until 1986.

Shinkansen sets are generally retired after fifteen to twenty
years. The final remaining 0 series sets were six-car sets used on
JR-West Kodama services on the San'yō Shinkansen between Shin-Ōsaka and Hakata, and on the Hakata-Minami Line until their retirement on 30 November 2008.

Following retirement from regular service, JR-West ran a number of special commemorative Hikari runs in December 2008.Hikari 347, powered by set R61, arrived at Hakata Station at 6:01 pm on 14 December 2008, bringing to an end the 44 years of service of the 0 series trains.
