Fuji and Gala Apple
Fuji Apple was developed in Japan back in 1930 and was introduced to the market in 1960s. It is one of the most popular apples in the USA.
This is a picture of Fuji Apple and Gala Apple.
There are three class of bullet trains between Tokyo and Osaka.
Your Japan Rail Pass covers Hikari and Kodama but Nozomi is excluded. Nozomi covers Tokyo to Shin-Osaka (552.6km or 345 miles) in about 2 hours 30 minutes. Hikari takes about 3 hours (depending on the number of stops) and Kodama takes about 4 hours.
Most trains require you to have seat reservation. You should be able to get the reservation at any station.
I recommend you seat at the north side of the train for two reasons. Sun shines from the south most of the time and you need to lower your shade to block the sun. North side, you get to see Mt. Fuji ... if you are lucky.
When you go to Japan, one of the first things that you find there would be how clean the street is. Another thing that you notice would be ... where is the trash bin? (There is usual none.)
Do you know why there is not rash bin? Take a guess.
Japanese Beef ...
There are some high-end steak houses in the US serve Wagyu.
Have you ever had Wagyu before?
What do you think about it?
There are class of vehicles that are called Keiyonrin 軽四輪 (Light Four Wheel) cars in Japan. The biggest engine they can have is 660cc and some are turbo charged.
Those cars have yellow license plates and pay less taxes.
You really need to try Tonkatsu (if you can) in Japan.
Ton = Pork
Katsu = Cutlet
They are so good.
People are packed into a train in Japan. You might want to avoid it but your might want to try it too.
