I travelled on the bullet train from Tokyo yesterday which was really exciting as it travels at 300km/h. Seeing Mt Fuji from the bullet train I think is going to be a definite highlight of the residency. Also I never realised the size of Tokyo, and the whole of Japan till arriving here – The tube network is colossal and the trains are around 30 carriages long on some of them. It is so much bigger than London I think. All the seats on the bullet train also always face forward and are cleaned to such a truly high standard!
