Nihongo|"Hayate"|はやて is the fastest service on the Tōhoku Shinkansen, and is the only Shinkansen service which goes as far as the current terminus of Hachinohe. It runs at a top speed of 275 km/h between Utsunomiya and Morioka. These services were inaugurated with the opening of the Tōhoku Shinkansen extension to Hachinohe on December 1, 2002.

The name "Hayate" has not been used previously on any train service in Japan. The name was chosen with input from the public; roughly translated, it means a strong or violent wind; however, it carries positive connotations of speed and power--ideal for use with a Shinkansen. The "Hayate" service uses 10-car E2 Series Shinkansen units, with 15 return trips a day operating between Tokyo and Hachinohe, with one return trip between Sendai and Hachinohe.

"Hayate" services are coupled with "Komachi" services as far as Morioka, where the "Komachi" cars are uncoupled and proceed to Akita Station via the Akita Shinkansen. Due to the popularity of the quick train service from Tokyo to the Tōhoku region, passengers on both the "Hayate" and "Komachi" services must have seat reservations.


All "Hayate" services, with the exception of one return service from Sendai, stop only at the following stations:

*Hachinohe*(*) These stations are not served by all trains.
