The Nozomi Experience

It’s the most expensive too and not covered by the JR Pass. It costs about ¥13,000 which could take a toll on one’s budget. But in about 2 hours or so, we reached our destination. Just so you could see how fast this train was, check out the vid below.

Wow right? Hahaha. That was a time lapse video. I tried to take in as much as I could but I was still experimenting on my camera then. Hehe. The train was fast with few stops in between. During the ride, we got a little hungry so we bought a couple of snacks while on the train.

It is expensive and there are other trains that could get you to where you are headed. It just might take some time but will still get you to your destination. 😉
