If you’ve been to Japan, then you have definitely heard of the Shinkansen — also known as the Bullet Train.
The first Shinkansen was built between Tokyo & Osaka. Ever since, many innovations in constructions has been adopted, which resulted to its increase of speed.
You will be able to reach Osaka from Tokyo in approximately 2hours and 30 minutes. Thus, giving its name in English, the Bullet Train.
It may sound quite intense knowing that you will be riding a bullet train but I assure you that it is one of the most efficient and comfortable trains you will ride in your life.
It is efficient because it is recommended for first timers in Japan but it is also highly used for those on a budget tour. This is because it allows travelers to travel from one city to another within just a few hours instead of long hours / the whole day.
