The view of Tomohito Megumi (Railway writer), 2021.06.19. (summary and translation of a Japanese text)

 Central Japan Railway Company (JR Tokai) is currently constructing the Linear Central Shinkansen. When completed, it will halve the current 2 hour and 20 minute journey between Shinagawa, Nagoya and Shin-Osaka on the Nozomi train to a minimum of 1 hour and 7 minutes.

The assumption is as follows: Both the Linear-Magnetics Central Shinkansen and the Tokaido Shinkansen will increase the number of users in a way that does not compete with each other.
 All trains will stop at "Tokyo, Shinagawa, Shin-Yokohama, Shizuoka, Hamamatsu, Toyohashi, Nagoya, Maibara, Kyoto", and two of "Odawara, Atami, Mishima, Gifu-Hashima" in turn.

In this hypothetical timetable, the number of "Hikari" stops at Mishima, Shizuoka, Hamamatsu, Toyohashi, and Maibara stations doubles, and the number of "Hikari" stops at Odawara and Atami stations also increases significantly. In addition, the number of "Hikari" trains stopping at Odawara and Atami stations has been greatly increased, and the time required to get there has been made slightly shorter.

 The effect of the opening of the Linear Central Shinkansen can be felt even if you don't live along the line.
