Photographing the Shinkansen

A while ago I found a perfect place to take Shinkansen (Japanese bullet train) pictures. You take Tokyo’s Yamanote line until Hamamatsuchō station, go out using the south exit and walk until the end of the corridor. Cross the bridge and look for a nice window. Another good place to take Shinkansen pictures is Shibanshi station.

    Geez, a couple of harsh comments you got. Are they friends of yours and are joking with you?

    Anyways, I like the photos because I like the shinkansen. I wish we had shinkansen style trains here in California.

  • […] subway lines in Tokyo are already running and we can move with certain liberty. I can see how the Shinkansen service to the south-west of Japan is running […]
