An important business meeting at Tokyo, Sendai, or Aomori, don’t want to fly but want the same speed and luxury in a hassle-free setup, you need to ride the Hayabusa. It is not a bike, but Japan’s new luxury bullet train literally flies 186mph and features a business class carriage based on on-air style comfort. The ultra-fast train and very punctual ‘Hayabusa’ or Falcon will take two trips between Tokyo and Aomori, located at the Honshu island’s northern tip. A day trip Sendai between the two destinations.
Talks of the speed hitting 200mph next year will make these bullet trains Japan’s fastest. If you are game for £200 on a one-way trip, you get to travel in a ‘GranClass’ car with deep recliner leather seats that offers a cabin attendant at your disposal for serving drinks and food.
