This time, I traveled from Tokyo to Hokkaido on the Shinkansen 'Hayabusa,' which operates at the country's fastest speed of 320 km/h.
The Hayabusa Shinkansen features a first-class section known as 'Gran Class,' which I had the pleasure of riding. Additionally, the Hayabusa I took this time is coupled with the 'Komachi' Shinkansen bound for Akita.
There's plenty to see, so enjoy the ride.
Prices are at time of shooting.

Definitely something to consider I always have to drive car around here to get from one point to another. Its not bad but if I wanna go somewhere far easily such as a train then it is going to be hard. The thing I hate about airports is the potential to have huge delays which I absolutely hate where trains don’t really receive these problems judging by going to France and UK once

Even in Japan, there is only 1 (one) Shinkanesen line that is profitable in a proper capitalist sense -- the one that goes between Tokyo to Osaka. In much the same way, there is only 1 (one) unquestionably profitable TGV route in France, the Paris - Lyon TGV. There is 1 (one) unquestionably profitable HSR line in China (the country with most high speed rails), the Beijing - Shanghai one, maybe extended to Hangzhou, and then there are like 12 that may or may not eventually, in many decades, become profitable. Most are never becoming profitable, and some like the XUAR line is losing money by operating, and they are all just pure politics. The US just does not remotely have the population density of Japan or France or China to have a commercially viable HSR network. There might be a place for a something like a high-speed rail going DC-Baltimore-Philadelphia-NYC-Boston, but that's about it.

Loved this. I am in Japan right now using my JR Pass. I took your trip 18 years ago but at that time the Shinkansen only ran as far as Aomori, then you had to switch trains. I went through the amazing Seikan tunnel including the slightly scary station under the ocean which was leaking water when I was there. Gran Via looks very similar to first class on the Chinese high speed trains I took when I lived in China before the Pandemic - but they were, of course, much cheaper, at least for me on a western salary so I took them all the time. Of course, only Japan has service like Japan - the BEST.

On my recent trip to Japan I also went to Hokkaido and I took a Hayabusa too, but in Ordinary Class. Even on Ordinary Class, there's A LOT of legroom and the car bathroom is spacious and clean. Plus, Hokkaido is a sight to behold and it's quite a bit cooler than mainland Japan. Worth a visit! (I went in August) If you're going to Hokkaido do yourself a favour and book a night at the onsen town in Noboribetsu (1h45 from Sapporo, 2h30 from Hakodate). Beautiful town and tons of onsens to choose.

Thanks for doing this video.

@tanner1ie Aylar önce
Very impressive! If the two trains were only about €320, i'd say it was well worth it! A normal flight (IF cheaper), couldn't be much cheaper, while surely a first class flight would be quite a lot more! Similarly to where i recently travelled on a very nice car ferry for the first time, rather than flying, aside from the extra time it takes and similarly seemingly not having to go through tedious and invasive security checks, whenever you have the time, i'd say that you should choice any other form of travel rather than flying! 😮😂 . Overall i'm very impressed with what i saw, with even the other two classes on the train being nicer than most trains i've been on (what's the price from the other classes for the same route?!). The one thing i didn't like was the seemingly limited choice of food as some trains i've been on over the years had dining cars where they served a pretty extensive selection of food. (Unless there was a dining car with more choices that you didn't go to, which would have been nice to see!) While the "Western dishes" on this menu didn't look any different to the Asian ones... I wonder what the "Date Chicken Meatball" is?! - is it like a chicken burger or as i suspect, only a variation on the other Japanese dishes on offer - of course when travelling in other countries, you can't expect all the food to be to your liking, but if that wasn't some sort of chicken burger, there'd be nothing on that menu i'd really eat so i'd have to pack sandwiches! Also the "beef tongue" sounds rather unappetising and i'd be afraid that it was slimy, but it looked surprisingly like a portion of rashers! (sliced bacon) and MIGHT taste ok 😯 . I really enjoyed this video but the only thing i found rather odd and annoying was your use of American terms and American English, rather than more European ones and using British English! - for example, no-one but Americans uses the terms "restroom" or "powder room", they just say bathroom, toilet, WC etc, while the "powder room" just appears to be a sink and an extension of the bathroom! Anyway, you just gained a new fan! 😀🤘.

we took that Hayabusu from Tokyo to Aomori a few weeks ago - the red part at the rear disconnected maybe at Morioka to continue to Akita, while the aqua front continued to Aomori. I wondered if it had a longest non-stop section being over an hour at full speed from maybe Sendai south coming back towards Tokyo. We had a JR Green Rail pass - wider seats, reserved only - it took me a while to work out the seat edge front socket was a Japanese 2-flat-pin power socket for 110V 2A so you need that kind of plug to charge your devices. I researched the way-elongated nose as I figured it wasn't needed for speed - turns out it's to reduce the bang when entering tunnels, of which there are many in Japan. Standard class seats seemed to be 3+2, green cars were 2+2, this gran class looks like maybe 2+1. Also my understanding is the 'fastest' Nozomi don't go any faster, they just make fewer stops - and all Shinkansen travel at the same max 320kph. My only complaint about green class seats were the electric recliner footrest was for a shorter person, and my six-footer toes would hit the seat in front when fully reclined. This gran class may have more legroom. And while people might assume the shinkansen to Hokkaido goes to Sapporo, AFAIK it doesn't and goes to Hakodate instead, which is some distance from Sapporo.

It's a lot more complicated in the US - 50 separate states with their own state legislatures and complicated transport funding, national disputes over funding (and it takes a lot to maintain hi-tech rail systems like this one - can't afford any cost-short-cutting at speeds like this, for one thing!), and of course, the distances in the US as compared to Japan. Japan's land mass is approximately 378,000 sq km while the US land mass is approx 9,833,500 sq km! But I'm with you on this one, cornflake73!

For all the talk about revamping the U.S.'s rail system, unfortunately I don't think it will ever happen. Think about it, Americans love their cars. They will never totally embrace rail, public transportation, bicycles, etc. By the way, I live on the East Coast and have travelled to Chicago twice, once by plane and once by Amtrak. Personally I enjoyed both journeys; I like both planes and trains. The train experience was good because I was able to see the actual countryside on the ground level instead of flying quickly over it.

What a truly amazing country Japan Is. The people are dignified and extremely polite. The Infrastructure is the best in the world. The country is spotless. Like this train, they utilise technology for the benefit for the people. It truly is a beautiful country. I'm from the UK and I hope to visit one day. With the way the west is heading, I'd love to stay there permanently.

A lovely video. The lack of talking so we hear only ambient sounds is very nice! I went to Japan once on business in the mid 80s. I loved everything about it.

It's so sad to see the Hayabusa carrying so few passengers all the way to Hokkaido, though I do feel like if they extended the line all the way to Sapporo more people would use it.

I totally get what you're saying. Extending the line to Sapporo could indeed attract more passengers. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! 🚄

Thanks for a wonderful video. I do not think I will be ever lucky enough to do that journey myself so this was pretty exciting. 13:35 In parts of the World where toilet seats/ commodes are not prevalent and the squat position is used for the said purpose, some people mistakenly, ignorantly squat on top of the seat/ commode. This leaves foot prints on the seat and even worse, making the seat useless for the next passenger. You will see the same instruction on Indian Railways, for example. Regards,

Thanks for the video. I took my first couple of Shinkansens this year, whereas on my last trip to Japan I couldn't afford them. However I also took Shinkansens in Taiwan, where they are 1/3 the price per km. Same speed and efficiency, but they have just one line. But all trains in Japan are good.

The train coupling is used in Europe a lot as well. I've traveled first class on the TGV/Thalys a lot, I absolutely love it. It uses a pretty similar chair layout in the cabin. This is way more luxurious though. I would love to try this one day
@natehill8069 2 aylar önce
Its a Scharfenberg coupler, invented in 1905. Its an automatic connection and passes brake air as well as pushing/pulling the train. In this updated incarnation it also connects electrical signals, thats the rectangular piece on top. Of course as used here it is only for controlling the following train as both trains propel themselves.
@RetroHoo 2 aylar önce
@@natehill8069 Thanks for that interesting piece of information! I've looked it up and indeed the Scharfenberg coupler has been in use since 1934 on trams and trains here in the Netherlands (and probably many other countries in the EU)

@@RetroHoo I believe the Chunnel train has one right in the middle; in case of a fire or something, they can get everyone from the front into the back (or vice versa) then cut the train in half and use the not-on-fire half as a lifeboat to escape.

My only experience with fast trains is the Frecciarossa in Italy, which is not even close to as fast as Japanese bullet trains, but man, the first time i experienced it going up to full speed, I was floored! Che veloce! It's very fast.

I recently visited the Railway Museum in York, UK. They have a very old white and blue Shinkansen there, but looking at its old interior, it looks and feels well ahead of any UK trains I have been on. Seats are way more comfortable, set out in a two and three row set-up, and with some room to them, not bunched up so much. There is a small TV screen before the entrance where they show a short video of the new Superconducting Maglev Technology version. The woman reading the Snoopy book has some taste, great books. I don't know what I would eat in Japan, I don't like seafood and rice and, and I only eat simple English food. It looked very colourful and I was amazed at the box (chemicals) heating it up for you. Thanks for an insight into travel on those amazing trains.

Thank you for the relaxing and interesting video! The trees at the beginning were beautiful - like giant bonsai. And the train was incredible! Lovely colors on all of them. But...no Coke among all those drinks? Uncivilized! 😂 I agree, it was cool to see the train close itself after the decoupling...and I was thinking magnets, as well. Until next time - domo aringato.

Welcome to the land of the midgets. The Japanese don't need to eat that much. The other explanation is that Japanese cuisine usually consists of 'a little portion of many dishes' as opposed to a single gorgeous dish. I buy multiple lunch boxes if the box seems too small, and that's quite normal.
