I never ride a train in Europe but I always look forward to my train rides when in Japan. Last time I was in Japan in May this year I went from Tokyo to Osaka and back on one day and from Tokyo to Sendai and back the next day.

I just love the Shinkansen and wish we would have something like that in Europe.
