Shinkansen crossing Tokyo

Took this picture near Shinagawa station. Shinkansen is the Japanese Bullet Train and has two stations in Tokyo’s downtown.


The most impressive fact about Japanese Bullet Trains is their frequency and number of lines that are operating. At Tokyo Station you can see “Shinkansen trains” departing to many different places in the country almost every five minutes during the day.
