Here 's the video showing two brand new Japanese bullet trains E6(THE PINKISH-RED COLOURED) and E6 (BLUISH-GREEN)at Tokyo station.The trains looks quite ugly in my opinion...

Yes, quite homely. It's duck-billed and looks again like the fuselage of a plane. When I rode the bullet train back in the mid-Eighties, I again was under-whelmed. Its interior had all the charm of the airlines at the time, which fit in my mind the pervasive Japanese mentality: utility is the highest form of art. After a while, one starts to resent efficiency as the only measure of improvement modifications.

Well,
Utility sometimes lacks a certain charm, but, as far as moving people efficently, quickly and reliably....it's tough to surpass how the Japanese do it.

As for me, I like their train in the Blue-Green:

Oh that one! Sadly it has been scrapped! ThumbDown It is a short-lived bullet train for studying the two brand new trains you see in this video..
