Day 189- Bullet Train to Tokyo

Today we took the subway to the train station where we got to ride in a bullet train! Alexander couldn’t wait to see how fast we were going! Apparently we were going 200mph!

The trip from Kyoto to Tokyo takes 6 hours by car, but we did it in 2! 

The train was very fast and had the biggest seats we’ve seen in any train before, but my favorite part of the trip was seeing Mt. Fuji along the way! We drove right by the mountain!

Once we arrived, we needed to take 3 more subways to reach our AirBnB. We dropped off our bags and then headed back to the subway to get linner (lunch/dinner)! We went to a conveyor belt sushi place because I’ve always wanted to try one!! In the restaurants that I had heard of previously are where different plates of sushi go down the line and you just pick up what looks good. However, this place has you order what you want on a tablet and it is delivered to you! It was the absolute coolest!!

All of the sushi was delicious! Alexander tried all of the shrimp options! My favorite fish was the yellowtail!

Once we were completely stuffed, we walked off a bit of our food before heading back on the subway!

We then hit the grocery store for our breakfast and dinners for the next couple days!
