Since we were boarding the Shinkansen, it is hard to give you an idea of how fast they travel. Usually, they get up to speeds of about 180 out in the country. You only have about a minute to board once they pull into a station. By far, the coolest way to travel according to Aaron.
Leaving Nijo, we encountered the marathon crowds. The trains were quite packed. Luckily, the Shinkansen has reserved seating so the standing room only lasted a short ride.
