There’s been a lot of hype surrounding the new Pokemon themed Shinkansen (bullet train) by the JR East company running here in Japan. Well today I took a trip on it. It was the Asama Shinkansen between Tokyo and Nagano. We start off with a pic of good old Pikachu and the fire monkey (names will not be included other than Pikachu because I don’t know them. If you care look it up yourself).
I think we can safely assume that Pikachu is the Pokemon of choice among the Japanese, or at least the most recognizable one. I definitely wasn’t the only one taking pictures of the train in the Nagano station.
