Shinkansen or the Bullet Train:
Japan is very proud of its high-speed train system, the Shinkansen or the Bullet Train, which is known and admired throughout the world.
The Shinkansen connects most of the major cities on the main islands of Honshu and Kyushu. With maximum running speeds of over 300 km/h, Shinkansen provides more conveniences and safety to both commuters and travelers.
The ride on the Shinkansen is more like an airplane trip without some of the hassles. Cost wise, the bullet train is fairly similar to flying within Japan, but with the advantage of starting and ending your journey right in the city centers.
Most popular routes of the Shinkansen or Bullet Train:
Kagoshima-Chuo to Shin-Yatsushiro
Hakata-Fukuoka to Osaka
Osaka to Tokyo
Tokyo to Nagano.
Tokyo to Takasaki.
Tokyo to Niigata.
Tokyo to Fukushima.

Tokyo to Sendai.

Avoid rush hours: In major cities, avoid travelling during the morning and evening rush hours (approx. 7.30 to 9.30am and 5 to 8pm)
Seat Reservations: On peak travel days and especially during Golden Week, Obon and the New Year holidays, trains can get booked out several days in advance. For peace of mind seat reservations are always recommended, especially when traveling in groups and preferring to sit together. On a few shinkansen trains along the Tohoku Shinkansen (Hayabusa, Hayate and Komachi) seat reservations are mandatory.
