Day 11: Himeji, Shopping. Another ride on the Shinkansen bullet train, but this would be a slightly different experience for us: we didn't have a reserved seat ticket. Previously we had always had reserved seat tickets when we had taken the Shinkansen. We thought we'd try something new today. Some of the cars on the Shinkansen are unreserved, so you just get on and find a seat. It actually turned out quite easy and the trains were not that full.
