Day 6 Shinkasen (Japanese Bullet Train) - Platform Ticket 5 July 2012

We bought a entrance ticket/platform ticket (nyujouken) at JR Tokyo Station just to watch Shinkasen. 

The ticket cost 140yen and let you loiter at the platform for two good hours. 
When you purchase the ticket at the machine, remember to select "Platform Ticket button" and not the normal 140yen ticket.

The kids wanna take a ride but the train fare costs an arm and leg! 
They were contented by just being an observer. :)
