NAGOYA, Japan -- New bullet train cars entering into service next July will feature seats that recline better, power outlets for each passenger and free Wi-Fi, the operator of Japan's busiest high-speed rail line says.

Central Japan Railway gave the media a tour of the N700S cars on Wednesday. They will debut on the Tokaido Shinkansen connecting Tokyo and Osaka in time for next year's Summer Olympics in the country.
