BULLET TRAIN

新幹線[SHINKANSEN]

An ever-expanding network of high-speed railway lines in Japan since 1964. With the maximum speed exceeding 300 km/h, the train can connect Tokyo and Kyoto in just two hours. Renowned worldwide for its unrivaled safety and on-schedule operation, Shinkansen are exported to Taiwan and other countries. Travelling on the Shinkansen from west to east, from north to south, gazing at the passing scenery of towns and countryside through the train window while eating bento (boxed lunch) can be a lot of fun. The ride itself is a journey through the different colors of Japan.
