Mt. Fuji and Bullet Train (Postcard)

This is Japan's original Bullet Train, and the view of Mt. Fuji that I did not get.


My brother David and I rode the Bullet Train from Tokyo to Osaka. The weather was beautiful all the way - except around Fuji. Large mountains often "make their own weather." Fuji was covered with clouds that day.


This was the original Bullet Train. As I remember, the top speed was 200 kph (125 mph). Later models have more aerodynamic designs and higher speeds.
