We took the Shinkansen to Osaka. Does anyone remember what the Shinkansen is? The ride is going to be about an hour, so a 3 hour trip (maybe) was cut down by 2 hours!

Jenni and I both looked at each other thinking, "Wow... is this really it?". Turns out that wasn't the main, so that was a relief. The main was more acceptable, with crumbed beef that was thicker than the slices, although it was rather raw which I wasn't used to.
