Today I took the Shinkansen for the first time from Shin-Yokohama to Shizuoka. The ride is soooo nice! It's really smooth, quiet, and fast. I was only on the Shinkansen for about 40 minutes (less than it takes to get to Tokyo).
I tried to take some pictures, but all I had was my cellphone. Also, about 1/3 of the time we were going underneath mountains so I couldn't see much anyway. But here are some pictures--

What I could see from my seat. It was like an airplane and I had my own reserved seat and everything.
Here are some really blurry videos, but at least you can see how fast we were going::
