Shinkansen (Bullet Train)

<< Kyoto Nijo Castle << >> First Glimpse of Tokyo >>

From the castle, we had to go back to the Shinkansen station. We were taking it to Tokyo. The shinkansen is the famous bullet train. I believe it goes over 150 mph! It took about 3 hours to get to Tokyo? Well, either way, it was a very unique experience.

A Buddhist Temple! I wanted to stop and pray.

Tons of people in the shinkansen station. Notice all the students in uniforms.
