The 255 Series, or Bōsō View Express, is a DC electric multiple unit operated by JR East. It was introduced into commercial service on 2 July 1993, and was specifically designed to serve on Limited Express services from Tokyo to the Bōsō Peninsula.

It is the first Limited Express rolling stock to feature VVVF Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor traction control system, based on the results of trials with the prototype 209 series commuter EMUs.
