It seems that I spend a lot of my time on the Shinkansen. To be honest, I have a bit of a love affair with it, and I get a bit spoiled. My weekend doesn't feel right if I'm not heading somewhere on it on a Friday night, or coming home late on a Sunday. I always am on it. And I love people's reactions to it. You can always tell first timers, or people that don't go very often, theyre always snapping a photo. And then theres the business people taking it every week. Ive travelled once in my suit, and I feel like I'm much more part of the crowd.
