Tokyo --> Osaka
You can take a bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka in 2 hours -- or you can take the slow train, like we did, which takes about 9 hours. What's the point? It only costs about $20. And you get to see a lot more scenery. This was taken near our destination, around Kyoto. Sometimes you get a seat, sometimes you don't. Usually it's not crowded, but when you pass through important stations or cities, it can get packed.
