I have traveled to Japan three times before but this is the first time that I have tried the bullet train or Shinkansen in Japanese. For this trip, it was a must do experience on our list. One of the many firsts I’ve done on this Japan itinerary which mainly visited Osaka and Tokyo. The bullet trains on this route are aplenty. There are even three different kinds you can choose from. We went with the fastest one since YOLO! Haha. What we didn’t realize when we were planning the trips was it was golden week. On on a normal day, you have no problem buying tickets from the day itself but since it was golden week, I opted to buy tickets online to make sure we get to Tokyo in time and on that day. Our tickets can only be bought the week before by the agency so we opted for them to be mailed at the hotel in Osaka. We had no problem receiving them on time. Same with our pocket wifi.
