Japan has the coolest, fastest, most efficient trains in the world- no wonder little Japanese boys LOVE trains! The Shinkansen is the name for the bullet train, which can run as fast as 200 miles per hour! I hope my kids can experience the excitement of the train stations and trains in Japan someday.

Links:

1) Sanrio.com has a special website for their Shinkansen character, as well as shinkansen coloring pages.

2) Click here for another しんかんせんcoloring page. Oh, and this page has cool coloring pages of all kinds of trains (from the West Japan Railway Company)!

3) Shinkansen Kids website, here.

4) Japanese website for Thomas & Friends, here. This show is very popular in Japan.

… and this has nothing to do with Japan, but, have you heard about Miniatur Wunderland. the world’s largest miniature railway in the world, in Germany? It is pretty awesome. Watch a preview below:
