The Shinkansen




I love trains and a ride on the famous Japanese “bullet train (The Shinkansen) is a special treat no matter how many times I have taken the train. On this trip to Kyoto we were about a N700 series and the fastest of the scheduled trains between Tokyo and Kyoto — the Nazomi — zipping along the countryside at speeds up to about 300KM per hour.
You will note the crew arrives like an airliner and each car is inspected and cleaned in Tokyo by an assigned staff member prior to the departure from Tokyo.
