It's a Bird...It's a Plane...Nope! It's the Shinkansen Seen from the Park Hotel Tokyo

Believe it or not, this shot of the Shinkansen—the Tokyo bullet train (versus a regular, slow train)—was taken from 33 stories above the tracks, from our room at the Park Hotel. We've already showed you all around inside the place, but the magic of the property isn't just its affordable rates (for Tokyo!) and up-and-coming location surrounding by the big media skyscrapers in Shiodome, but its views.

Looking down, it's this—the bullet train tracks and a reminder of that fact that this capital of Japan is always on the move. Looking up and out, it's this, a glittering still shot you otherwise only see on postcards.

Rooms at the Park Hotel average $250 per night, but a $12 upgrade scores you the prime views.
