Trip on bullet trains

Yesterday I took bullet trains which was bound for Tokyo where my cousin' marriage party was held. The Japan's bullet trains are not only one of the important transportation for long distance along with airplanes but one of the Japan's greatest techniques which can be proud of to the would. The topic is not irrelevant to gardening but I would like to introduce my trip.
The service I used was the super express from Osaka to Tokyo (about 550km) which can arrive at Tokyo in 2 hours and 30 minutes at a max speed of 300kph. It costs about $150 for an adult.


This is the inside of the car. The seats are a bit larger than usual economy class of airplanes. Those seat has reclining function with arm rests.



Vending machines of juices and foods are seen in some corners in the cars. Even flushing toilets and powder rooms are available.



After the comfortable trip to Tokyo I arrived at a hotel where the wedding party were held. The Tokyo terminal is located near the hotel so that's why I took the bullet trains.



Here is the bouquet flowers the couple gave me as a present.
