New Sakura Shinkansen

The new Sakura Shinkansen high speed train service connecting Osaka and Fukuoka with Kagoshima started operation on 12 March 2011. Training to Kagoshima now only takes 4h10min from Osaka or 1h20min from Fukuoka. Watch the video for an impression of the pomp & circumstance of the inaugurational events. The Sakura is passing by our hometown Izumi around 0:35.
