How can you tell, because of the 16-car 500-series, the location or something else?

Because the last run with a 500 Series train with 16 cars in Tokyo were on the 28:th of February 2010. So if you want a more accurate date then it will be much harder to find since you really need to go into the details to get one.

Thank you!
Wondered why the date, because I could not be present.
...............
I just added to the wikipedia entry on Spanish, shinkansen travelers for years and companies (passengers and passengers/km), but I'm missing part of 2012 and 2013, any help would be appreciated.

EDIT:
Ups... I forgot to put the link:

Few minutes before 6 AM, railway staff from JR Central conmemorate at the track 19 in Tokyo Station. The firs train of the day was an N700-Advance, Nozomi 1 service. The situation was the same as half century ago.

Tsuge Yasuhide, President of JR Central speaks.





Let's take a look to other cities along the Tokaido Shinkansen.

Shizuoka. First Kodama 700 bound for Tokyo.





Nagoya. First Hikari 500 bound for Tokyo.





Shin-Osaka. Simultaneous exit of the first Nozomi 200 bound for Tokyo at 6 AM.

It is undergoing a thorough battery of running tests, last month it was at the Shin-Yatsushiro gauge changing facility:




This particular type (or rather the revenue version of it) will likely run only in Kyushu, as JR West is going to develop a different trainset for use on the Hokuriku shinkansen.

Congratulations on the train that literally changed the world.

Before the Shinkansen, everyone--even in Japan--thought that passenger trains were on their way out, replaced by automobile and airplanes as the primary means of transportation. But the enormous success of the Tokaidō Shinkansen proved everyone wrong, and as a result, other HSR systems started to appear around the world, such as the French TGV/LGV and today's China Rail High-speed (CRH) system. Indeed, the TGV/LGV was one major reason why they finally decided to build the Channel Tunnel, especially when Eurostar trains can now go from central London to central Paris in only 2 hours 15 minutes.

I Thing the design will be use on Hokuriko Sinkansen will base on the E7, if we look the FGT 3rd generation it's base on the nose of E7

Blast from the past.

Quote:
Working out the bugs in first shinkansens

TOKYO — “The rails on the line weren’t completely connected until just three months before the startup of services, so in some sectors we had to hold down speed to 70 kmh,” Kameo Seki, age 81, recalls in Shukan Shincho (Oct 16).

Seki drove the first shinkansen departure, Hikari No. 1, from Tokyo Station on Oct 1, 1964

“But the conductor kept popping into the driver’s compartment to ask me, ‘At what point will we be surpassing 200 kmh?’ Passengers had jammed into the buffet car, where they could watch the speedometer mounted on the wall.”

“Since the train wasn’t due in Osaka until four hours later, I could get there without hitting 200 kmh, so I held the speed around 160 as far as Kyoto,” says Seki.

However, Kazutaro Oishi, 81, the motorman in Hikari No. 2 that departed from Osaka, was reluctant to disappoint his passengers. After departing from Kyoto station and traveling past Lake Biwa the train reached a long straightaway and Oishi turned up the speed to 200 kmh. The length of the train erupted with passengers’ shouts of jubilation............... to read further click here
After that it's history.
