Bullet Train – Shinkansen

Traveling to Hirshima via Bullet Traint train is an experience that everyone should try before leaving Japan. The Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen is  convenient, and only slightly longer than traveling by plane, and without the headache of getting to and from the airport and going through the check-in/baggage process.  However it is quite a bit more expensive than plane travel.

Passengers in wheelchairs have access to special seating on high speed trains but must make a request to the station they are boarding at, two days in advance. Wheelchairs must conform to maximum size requirements and those with steering wheels are generally not allowed. Elevators and escalators at stations are wheelchair-friendly. Strollers can be carried onboard at no charge, as long as they are folded and placed either in front of the seat or in the luggage compartment.
