SHINKANSEN - BULLET TRAIN FROM TOKYO TO HIROSHIMA

 SHINKANSEN (BULLET TRAIN)
TOKYO TO HIROSHIMA

Loved our ride on the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) from Tokyo to Hiroshima.  The four hour journey was super comfortable, smooth, quiet and very relaxing.  When the Bullet Train passes you at the station or outside on the tracks, the speed is mind boggling.  The huge "swish" sound takes your breath away and grown ups and kids alike freeze and smile.  Inside is another story.  The ride is so smooth that it feels like your not moving.  Look out the windows and you realize you are flying through time but inside it is like time has stopped.  The Reserved Seats are spacious and comfortable with attendants going down the isle after every stop.  Snacks, food, drinks and beer and wine are all available at a cost.  I enjoyed a glass of wine and sandwich on the way to Hiroshima.  On the way back we brought food purchased at the train station and feasted all the way back to Tokyo.
