Bullet train Japan


Check out this video for a rare look at one of Japan's bullet trains.  Known as the Shinkansen, the high-speed rail system here encompasses a network of rail lines which collectively cover almost 2.8k km (1.7k mi.).  Top speeds of these trains reach 240-320 km/h (150-200 mi/h), and can in the right circumstances be faster than jet travel between certain cities.  Watch the video and you'll get a sense for how fast these trains move; you will also realize how impressive Japan's safety record is given the very high speeds involved.
