Bullet Train ... Shinkansen 新幹線

There are three class of bullet trains between Tokyo and Osaka.

- Nozomi
- Hikari
- Kodama

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.

Another Japanese Fast (Cheap) Food ... Ramen

This is an instant ramen ... I cooked it.
Ramen ranges from 300 yen to 1,200 yen in Japan. Of cause there are more expensive ones, but Ramen supposed to be fast and cheap food.

In the US, Ramen and Gyoza set cost over $15 and sales tax and tip make them over $20. I think that is too much.

Do you like ramen?
