Losing My Shinkansen Virginity

Tonight we left on the Shinkansen, the bullet train to Kyoto.

I didn`t get a chance to take a picture of the front so this is just a poster of what it looks like. Sorry.

We didn`t get a chance to have dinner before leaving home, so she bought a bento, and I got pork sandwiches (550 yen) to eat on the train.

A little bit expensive for one sandwich cut into three pieces but it was pretty tasty.

The train was super quick.

From Toyko to Kyoto only took about two hours to get there. This is us waiting to board the train at Tokyo Station.

See how excited I am? This is my first Shinkansen trip, and the second trip outside of the Kanagawa and Tokyo areas. Kyoto should be really something!
