Japan Mission 2011, Riding the Shinkansen

Traveling at 125 mph in comfort is a great ride. We took the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) north to Sendai from Tokyo. A 2 hour ride across the beautiful countryside.  Includes some interview with team members.  The typical cost for a 5 day ticket is $200 but that is for the Shinkansen and the regular commuter trains.  Great deal  available for foreigners only.  

Our trip was to Ishinomaki.  a costal city north of Sendai that lost 8000 people because of the tsunami.  It was a week of relief ministry.  We continue to return in support of a church plant.
