Introducing the Shinkansen (JR Bullet Train)
Japan's bullet trains offer slickness, speed and modern efficiency. Running at speeds of up to 320km per hour, the Shinkansen connects most of the coutry's main cities. The trains themselves look incredibly futuristic, with a sleek, striking profile that hints at the high speeds they reach. They're probably the most punctual trains in the world, too - departures are timed to the second!
