新幹線の「のぞみ」(The “Nozomi” shinkansen)

I took a Nozomi Shinkansen from Kyuushuu up to visit Kyoto and Osaka for a few days a few weekends ago.

These badass trains travel at around 285 KM/hr and are smoooooooth. They look awesome too!

In their 40 year history there have been ZERO fatalities due to accidents or derailments (including accidents caused by earthquakes and typhoons.) That probably makes them the SAFEST form of transportation in the world.

The inside is quite clean and comfortable too!  Even for a big Westerner like me.

The only way to travel!

  1. Wow, 0 fatalities? thats amazing, now I wonder why we don’t see these kind of statistics more often….

    On another note, I’ve been following your works (quietly) since your AMV days, but I must say that your photos are just as amazing to me as those were. Although I never got to go to some of those places when I was there, your photos really make me remember how much I miss being there, hehe. Keep up the awesome work 😀
