  1. 'Not too much time for painting in recent years... I have a portrait of my youngest daughter on the go - and I will definitely finish it one day. (I started it when she was 16. She is now 19 - so I will have to finish it while she is, technically at least, still a teenager!) Photography... Well, this little blog of mine is also supposed to be about some of my attempts at photography, so here are a few snaps I took of the Shinkansen, on a recent (work-related) trip to Japan. Welcome, to the Shin-Kan-Sen!! (You have to pause for a very brief moment after "Welcome" - and say
  2. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    Another awesome train at Kokura Station. (I used to be a train-spotter, you know? Does it show?!!) 😎 😄 😂 Shinkansen 新幹線 (pronounced: Shin-Kan-Sen) refers to the rail system, not the trains that run on it! 新幹線 translates, word-for-word as "New trunk line" - in other words, it's a dedicated high speed rail network. When I was in school, we used to call the trains that ran on the Shinkansen, "Bullet Trains" (Some people still do!) Here's an East-bound or "Up" train at Kokura Station in Kita Kyushu - on a very brief stop before hurtling off towards Tokyo.

  4. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    ...or something like that!! Something or other whizzing past the window whilst traveling at high speed on the Shinkansen between Kokura and Hakata. Don't ask me what it was - I don't know!! (We were going too fast!!! ...Bracing wires for the gantries that support the overhead power cables, at a guess!!)

  6. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    Looking out of the window whilst traveling at "full chat", somewhere between Kokura and Hakata on the Shinkansen
  7. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    View from the window when the Shinkansen winds up to full seed!! I have no idea what this was!!! 😄😅😁 😂😂
  8. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    Lot's of people getting off here and the Shinkansen trains run on time... To the second - unless there is an emergency! So you need to have all your stuff together and be ready, waiting by the doors to get off as soon as the train pulls into the station.
  9. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    This beats flying any day! A lot more leg room - and a better sensation of speed. There's actually quite a lot of people in this carriage but the Japanese are not noted for being particularly tall - which is why you can only see half of them!!
  10. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    Rapidly acclerating out of Kokura, you can feel the G-force pushing you back in your seat!
  11. From the album: Welcome, to the Shinkansen!

    The Shinkansen is Japan's high-speed rail network. The trains that run on the network, ("Bullet Trains") in the West, are smooth, slick, quiet - and very fast! They run in the region of 300km/h. Running from city center to city center all over Japan - (and without the need to check-in one hour before departure!) - they can make getting to where you actually need to be quicker than flying, if you are going anything less than from one end of the country to the other!
