The finest of train creation. The Japanese really know their stuff when it comes to technology, it was even launched in 1957 which just goes to show you how far ahead of the world Japan is. The Shinkansen is the fastest long distance train which are usually taken from major cities to other major parts of the country.
If you find yourself in Japan we have lots of train spotting groups up and down the country with some English speakers. I would be happy to direct you to the local group of your city vacation, just email me.
