Getting to Hiroshima

Previous post: Getting to Osaka

Date: 16 December 2012

After a good night rest, that morning we were heading to Hiroshima.

First we had to leave the Shin-Osaka station:

 

 

To catch a train to Osaka (then Hiroshima)

 

Very early on Sunday morning, but the station was already busy :)

 

waiting for the train

 

Nafis’s first shot of the famous Japanese bullet train:

 

Our train had arrived:

 

Very cosy and spacious inside (definitely much more leg room than the planes!) and no need to bother with seat belts!

 

Basic information about our coach/car on the front, with indications on where the local amenities are located (toilets, garbage bins, etc) can be found in front of our seats.

Here’s a lady selling the food and drinks on board. She came around quite regularly, at least after a stop.

 

A typical Japanese scenery:

DH tried to record the speed of the bullet train, but it didn’t touch 300kph. The closest was 299kph.

 

Another look inside the train:

 

Arriving:

 

hiroshima finally!

 

There’s a huge busy junction in front of the station that we had to take the underground passage:

 

It’s a huge shopping complex on its own!

 

some Sunday afternoon activity;

 

Once out of the passage:

 

crossing a river (the station is some where on the far end of the right hand side in the picture here:

 

We walked another 100m or so from the bridge to get to our hotel.
