Japan is famous from high-speed trains. They reach the speed of around 300 km/h, but test runs have reached even over 600 km/h – isn’t it crazy?!?
Japanese high-speed trains are called Shinkansen or simply bullet trains. While being in Japan, you have to take a ride! These trains are very nice, safe and very reliable. If I’m correct, each year the Japan Railways companies make statistics about average delay from schedule and these results are pretty impressive.
However, as you see in today’s picture, the delay can be also quite big (5 minutes is a lot! – seriously! people were very confused because of that!).
Actually, I took this photo on the 31st of December, so the last day of that year destroyed yearly statistics… 😉
