Hello. I am going to Tokyo this week. But during my stay there I will have to visit my friend in Kyoto. He suggested me to use Shinkansen (bullet train). But I dont know if that is safe way of traveling. Does Anyone have with experience on Bullet Train in Japan? Any information is valuable. Thanks.

I used Bullet train once. And I was fascinated with it. It can reach speed even 300km/h. It is incredible. Like real bullet. And someone would think that it isnt nice to travel with the train that is that fast. But I must say that it is very nice traveling with it. You cannot guess that train is going that fast when you are in. The seats are cozy and comfortable. I am sure that you will enjoy traveling with this train. And what is important you get very fast to the place where you want to go. I really dont know how safe they are. But it looks like it is pretty safe.

I used Bullet train several times. It is a network of high-speed railway lines.

Shinkansen trains are electric multiple unit style, offering high acceleration and deceleration, reduced damage to the track due to lighter vehicles.

During the Shinkansen's 44-year, nearly 7 billion-passenger history, there have been no passenger fatalities due to derailments or collisions, despite frequent earthquakes and typhoons. Injuries and a single fatality have been caused by doors closing on passengers or their belongings; attendants are employed at platforms to prevent such mishaps.The only derailment of a Shinkansen train in passenger service occurred during the Chūetsu Earthquake on October 23, 2004

The Shinkansen has had a great effect on Japan's business, economy, society, environment and culture. The time savings alone from switching from a conventional to a high-speed network.
