Riding the Rails through Canada

Via Rail

My wife and I are currently taking a train across Canada. And while were riding the rails, it got me to thinking about how efficiently trains work in Japan.

Now don’t get wrong, we’ve been having a great time on the old CPR, but certain things about train travel just seem to be polished to perfection in Japan. Being on time for one thing.

It would be unheard of in Japan for a train to be over an hour late as ours was, and I can guarantee you wouldn’t have to plug your laptop into the bathroom because it was the only charger in your car. Just some of the ways that we lag behind the rest of the world in our train travel. But one good thing it’s done is give me plenty of time to think about my upcoming posts all about train travel through Japan. Stay tuned, you wont want to miss it!
