The incident was filmed on the Tokaido Shinkansen high-speed line between the central Japanese capital Tokyo and the southern city of Osaka.
The video was posted on Twitter by the Australian singer and voice artist Donna Burke where it has gone viral with over four million views.
In the footage, Burke talks to the camera as a Japanese announcement is heard in the background.
