Embark on an adventure from Osaka to Tokyo with the assistance of Japan's famous high-speed bullet train, the Shinkansen. The views of the Japanese countryside and the picturesque image of Mt. Fuji passing by along the way contribute to the popularity of this iconic train line. At the station in Osaka, there are plenty of options for tasty "Bento" lunch boxes packed with tasty Japanese cuisine, bringing one for the ride is considered a traditional part of the Shinkansen experience. So make sure to pick the best-looking lunch and enjoy one of Japan's most exciting experiences.
