Nozomi Shinkansen

Faster than a speeding... bullet?
You bet! In fact the thing is so darn tootin' fast that when you pass another train your ears pop from the pressure. When you enter a tunnel you get the same pressurized effect as going up a mountain to an extremely high elevation and you have to yawn. Now that's what I call a fast train!

Last call, all aboard!

This was the train I took. As you can see, there is more than one type of bullet train. The NOZOMI is the express train which stops in only 7 stations accross Japan, Tokyo at one end and Hakata at the other, is faster than flying. It's a well known fact that by the time you get through airport security the NOZOMI SHINKANSEN (bullet train express) has already traveresed the entire nation of Japan to bring you safely to your destination.

Needle nose here is a newer model of the Shinkansen.

It looks more like a bullet than the white one, which to me looks a lot like a duck.
