After the SUPER FAST ride on the Shinkansen bullet train, I arrived in Nagoya with no real idea what to do.  Thank goodness for TripAdvisor, the mobile app and the website. Read More »

Today, right now in fact, I’m riding the Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo to Nagoya. I’m on the fastest of the available Shinkansen options, the N700, with a top speed of 190 MPH and it sure as hell feels like it. It feels odd moving this fast on land, my ears keep popping as though I were going through rapid elevation change, but the travel is mostly flat.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a window seat, but I’ll hopefully have one for the way back so I can take pictures.

It turns out that it is not cheap to travel via Shinkansen.  The pricing is on par with taking an airplane, but much more convenient in that there’s none of that take off, landing and boarding process to go through.  You just walk in the door of the right car and find a seat.

Will update again later, hopefully with pictures of Nagoya and of the trip back from Nagoya to Tokyo.
