The 500-series shinkansen was the latest thing when I moved to Japan in 1997. Now, this futuristic-looking train has been relegated to the "slow", non-express Kodama service.

I will be away for a couple of weeks now, back to Japan for our annual holiday, where I hope to get lots of cherry blossom photos - see you in April!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Ah, yes, progress waits for no-one . . still looks the business, though. Have a safe trip.

I still admire these "slow" trains. Any shinkansen is a good shinkansen. A very cool photo.
