Once we arrived at Nagoya Airport, we refuelled and sorted the plane and had signed all documents, the handling agent, a very friendly japanese Gentleman, took us to the Airport/ Station transit bus and it took us about 30 Min to get to the station. What a huge Railway station, but I must say, again all the signage in English also, all well organised, but huge number of people.
We purchased a Shinkansen Train ticket on the machine, very much like the ticket stations you get in Germany, the one you can change language on.
Now we have been sitting on the train since nearly one hour, up to this point of moment no speed. Der Zug eiert hier nur entlang. Nothing like 200 km/h or so, more like a slow ICE in Germany. To be honest, I am a bit disappointed, I expected to feel like as if we are in a Rocket... if the plane does not want to perform, I had hopes the Shinkansen would ;-)
Tonight we want to catch up on our celebration, Sushi. And for the next 2/3 days we take it easier and I hope even Dietmar will find some time to do a bit sightseeing. We were already saying, we want to depart Tokyo one night earlier because we do not want to have a 2h train ride and a 30 min Bus ride back to Nagoya Airport on the day of departure with a long leg of 723nm in front of us. We must rather preserve energy on that day and I will see if we do not find an airport hotel close to where the plane is parked.
PS: It took us 5 hours from landing to the Hotel, check in not included. We are tired.
