Remarks & Notes 
A 10 hour layover while flying back to the states following a deployment in Southeast Asia provided me with a chance to check off a major item on any railfan's bucket list; ride Japan's Shinkansen. While I only had time to ride out to Suburban Tokyo, it was enough to complete impress. Trains run in greater frequency than most subways due and arrive at the station within seconds of when they suppose to.

Anything that grabs one's attention and holds it. These photos tell more than a story based on the sum of its parts, but create other stories.
