One of today’s highlights was a trip on the world famous Japanese Shinkansen – bullet train. More than a million people a day pass through Tokyo’s central station every day, so it was no mean feat for our Japanese tour guide to get over 200 somewhat confused Westerners to the right platform and onto the right train!

We traveled from Tokyo to Fukuwara, a journey of more than two hours, and watched the greater Tokyo metropolitan area (home to 30 million people) and lovely Japanese countryside flash by at over 200 km/hour.
