The Shinkansen (otherwise known as the “Bullet Train”) is fast. Bloody fast. When we were travelling to Tokyo to take our flight to Canada I took this video to show how fast it really moves. Check it out!

Taking the shinkansen is one of my favorite memories of Japan. What I remember most was standing in the station as one of the non-stop express trains roared through the station. Awesome.
It is very cool (and a little bit scary too).
*Notes down on my list of MUST DO when Im in Japan*
What else is on your list?
I also love the fact that they have Train Attendants on the trains with carts selling food and beer. Nothing like roaring through the Kanto enjoying a Sapporo. Awesome.
One of the best things about Japan is the ability to get beer anywhere.:)
Oh yes! Gotta love those vending machines.
one of my favorite rituals is to get a beer at the train station convenient store in Narita and then drink it on the train ride into Tokyo. You can have you sub, I’ll stick to my suds.
I’m usually so sleepy on the train ride from Narita to home, that beer would only make matters worse.

I'm originally from Canada, but now live in Japan. I like games, strange things, and trying new foods. I hope you enjoy reading my semi-interesting posts and pictures.
