We took one of Japan's fabled "Bullet Trains" from Shin Osaka to Hiroshima, and it was a very unique experience. To see the Japanese countryside whizzing by at 185 MPH, all the while not feeling a bump was amazing.
The ride there was an express and quick at 1:30, but on the way back we took a local and it was three hours. We rode and read in comfort so all was good...and smooth.
