I travelled on it a few times in the 80s, it was great.

It just looks so fast that I might end up with a permanent smile on my face! Gritted teeth, even But I daresay it didn't feel like that when travelling on it?

Very smooth, it didn't really feel it was doing the speed it was. I imagine the current versions are even better.

I would love to visit Japan - rural Japan though, not the modern cities.

Re: Japanese bullit train

Wow - the length of it is as amazing as it's speed! I wonder what the accident rate is compared with ours?
