Shinkansen vs TGV - Is One Better Than the Other?

FWIW

The TGV seats 2 on one side and 1 on the other.

Current Shinkansen trains seat 3 on one side and 2 on the other.

The newest LMV (Linear Magnetic Vehicle) seats 2 on one side and 2 on the other.

The radius for Japan's trains is half that of the TGV so it can make tighter curves even though it seats more people.

The TGV is faster than the regular Shinkansen trains but the LMV is faster than the TGV.

FWIW
