Travel with Shinkansen

If you want to visit Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima within a short period of time, you’d better take shinkansen, Japanese high-speed railway or better-known as bullet train.  If you take shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto, try sit down on the right side and you will have a great view of Mt. Fuji.

There are several types of shinkansen.  This is a photo of Tohoku shinkansen which goes to the northern part of Tokyo, Tohoku region.img_1189

If you are really lucky, you will find a yellow shinkansen.

This is called Dr. Yellow and this train checks the status of the tracks while running.

At every shinkansen station, you can always enjoy buying souvenirs.
