On Sunday the 500 series Nozomi bullet trains were retired from the Tokyo to Hakata service to make way for the new N700 series.
The 500 series are popular for their futuristic pointed cone noses.
Many people showed up to Tokyo Station to say goodbye to the 500 series last departure.
I love riding the Shinkansen (bullet train).
The 500 is one of my favourites.
I try to take a trip somewhere on a bullet train once or twice every year.
