Getting on Board Japan’s Bullet Trains
Just because they’re fast doesn’t mean that they’re not comfortable. In fact, when you’re riding in the train, you can expect the trip to be relatively quiet. In addition, the cabins tend to be pretty spacious so you probably won’t feel cramped or claustrophobic. There are two classes of cabin in the bullet trains. There’s the ordinary car where each row usually has three seats, then the aisle, then another two seats. Even if it’s called ordinary, these cabins are still comfortable. The other cabin is the green car. It has wider seats and greater leg room. There are usually just two seats on each side of the aisle.
