Ridlng the Shinkansen

This morning I headed to Tokyo station and excitedly caught the bullet train, or shinkansen, bound for Kyoto. This was something I'd been wanting to do for a long time, and I wasn't disappointed. Inside it's more like being in a plane than a train, and as we quickly left Tokyo behind, I opened up my bento box and had lunch as we rushed through the Japanese countryside at over 300km/h. I tried to read a bit of my guidebooks but, very soon, we were arriving in Kyoto.
