Passing by, originally uploaded by e-jump.
This is the Hikari N700 Shinkansen i believe, passing thru at 200KMh+ at Kodama Station HigashiHiroshima. Theres a few station in Kansai/Chubu where the Nozomi and Hikari passing through at top speed.

Nice! I didn’t get to see one in reality though.
yeah. In Kanto the Shinkansen tracks are elevated above ground.
And I think they(Tokaido Shinkansen) only go full speed around Shizuoka area.
I only got a chance to ride like 3 different models, N700, HikariRailStar and i forgot another model
Unfortunately i used a fast shutter thus theres no motion feel 😦
Bt it felt awesome as fast bullet train go passing by, n the wind~.
yep.. i can hear it! and certainly feel it as it goes by! I’ve got a post with the same train in it…
Yep. same model.
Surprisingly you dont feel fast being inside the Shinkansen when it go above 240kmh.
Its expensive, but tourist get to use special pass to ride the Hikari and Kodama. My wallet is not ready for Nozomi rides >_<
Yes, I agree… it’s so quiet inside! whizzing by! lol. And yes, rather expensive… I’ve been on all sorts in Japan… to Hiroshima, up to Koriyama (Fukushima), Nagano, Niigata…
