Shinkansen Trains

I have been passionate about trains since I was a kid. I always envied the people who could get on train travel.

I didn't get to travel on a train until I was in my late 20s. I have been traveling in trains countless of times since then. However, my first experience on an ultra-high speed train was with the Shinkansen in Japan.

There are several generations of Shinkansen train and I was fortunate to travel on most of the types available, including the fastest!

They are the sleekest looking trains I've ever seen.
