Evangelion Shinkansen

I have to go see this. I guess I’m going to have to go to Hiroshima again soon. Hahahha. :D

My Time In Japan

This year marks the 40th year that the Sanyo Shinkansen (bullet train) line has been in operation in Japan, as well as the 20th anniversary of the anime, Evangelion. And what happens when you put the two together? You get the 500 Type Eva!

The creator of Evangelion and a mechanical designer got together and created this amazing design for one of the 500 series shinkansens. The train only runs once a day between Osaka and Hakata (and return), and yesterday, 7th November, was the opening day. Coincidently, I just happened to be heading into Hiroshima City and needed to catch a certain train. ;)
