Here we go, the third day of My Summer 2015 Japan Trip !
As i long as I remember ,that day i didn't go anywhere that much.That's why this post is quite short and there's only few pictures I can show you guys.You want to know why?Yeah that's practically because that day,for the first time in my life, I experiencing Typhoon !

Yap...  i never thought it would happen in such Summer Time...
So yeah,our group tour plan that day to hike Mount Fuji is cancelled and the schedule that day gone total mess. We changed route and eliminated some stops in order to avoid typhoon.Our wish that day is only to reach our hotel safely lololol.But hey we have God,so we prayed in bus all day long and Oh, God is soo good and His guidance is perfect.Typhoon came just like 1 hour after we reach our hotel yet we're safe and sound already

So yeah we can only made visit to some stops,and the first stop is..SHINKANSEN railway!
Truthfully speaking,Riding a Shinkansen 新幹線 (Japanese high speed bullet train) almost feels like riding a usual JR monorail, you bought the ticket to your destined stop as usual but in more 'strict' way.The train claimed to be always on time and so are the passenger.You don't wanna be left behind don't you?So punctuality is the key.
Being so fast as flash and have the ability to ride at 300km/hour is truly fascinating.But truth is ,it doesn't make me feel any difference while being a passenger inside regular train except got one by one seating with table,just like plane seating.The only thing and the uttermost thing that i adore from Shinkansen is it design. Yeah nothing beats Shinkansen 's head shapes. How sophisticated!
