When I visited Japan last summer, one of the things I had to complete on my bucket list was to ride the Shinkansen, Japan's bullet train. Luckily enough, I had the chance to ride it when going to Kyoto from Tokyo, hence why I took this photo. I went to the cabin entry door and took a picture of a view outside the window. I chose to use this photo from my recent travels to Japan, because I am fascinated by the technology and efforts the Japanese pulled into launching the most successful bullet train in the world.

I believe it is "phenomenal" in itself that train technology has advanced so far. Considering the train was moving at speeds above 200mph, it's insane that I was able to capture a diversity of the Japanese countryside, some hills, and a view outside the window itself. It still amazes me to this day that I was able to ride on a technological marvel.
