Last week my bullet train from Kyoto to Tokyo was delayed...almost four and a half hours...after we got on. Try sitting on a Shinkansen for more than six and a half hours. It really sucked, but I ended up sitting next to a 20 year old college student...female...for five and a half hours...That was cool. +1-1=0.
This week, no such luck either way. My train was on time.
