Shinkansen (Sanyo + Tohoku)
I would like to travel fast with the Shinkansen and during my trip, I have two options:
- Sanyo: Osaka-Himeji, already planned trip
- Tokyo: Possible northbound day-trip
The rest of my trip is in the 'alps' via busses or local trains.
Is it possible to travel fast (300 km/h) on the Osaka-Himeji trip? As far as I can read, no express-trains stops at Himeji, so I guess we won't be able to travel really fast.
An alternativ is a daytrip from Tokyo northbound with the Hayabusa or Kumachi lines. As I can read the fastes leg is just before Sendai.
Does it maske sense to do this, knowing that we will definatly take the Osaka-Himeji trip alter on? We are traveling with kids (age 4 and 8) and I can see there is minimum 2 hour trip to Sendai or further north. Beside the train trip itself there should also be something to do or see at the destination. :-)
I hope you can help me.
