This was our very first trip on the bullet train (Shinkansen), in Japan. We travelled from Tokyo to Kyoto, on the 15th of June. It felt as comfortable as a plane & was a really novel experience for us. We used the bullet train quite a few more times with our JR Pass on our vacation, as we went further south towards Fukuoka and for day trips to Hiroshima, then back to Kyoto & Tokyo. Its a great way to see the country in comfort. Have you been on the Shikansen, or plan to someday?
