This is normally called Japan’s bullet train.

How about enjoying the Japanese scenery from a Shinkansen?

Because this city was originally developed as an electric town ( you will be surprised to learn this town’s history), electronics are famous here. For all electronic lovers, this place is the best place to buy imported electronics. I must suggest that an electronic momento from Otaku is a must.

This is that time of the year in Japan (March end to April), where the cherry blossoms bloom to their complete nature, and people from far away distances to visit this place just to viewing the blossoms of the tree. These cherries blossoms at night and is surely a great and soothing sight to be seen. Now you know why we call a cherry blossom?
