I’ve taken the Shinkansen a couple of times when I lived in Tokyo and have always been amazed by the incredible speed and comfort of the train. This charming art book by Morinaga Yo is a great way to learn more about the Shinkansen while enjoying the artist’s beautiful watercolor illustrations.

Also, the language used is pretty simple and all Kanji characters come with furigana pronunciations, which is great for learning Japanese !

I highly recommended Morinaga Yo’s other illustrations art books that I’ve reviewed – Tokyo Skytree and Tsukiji Fish Market.

DISTRAKT

Beautiful watercolor indeed!

I love these types of art/reference books that provide detailed information (with cross-sections and the like) in a comic book/manga style of art. I think I must have had similar ones from when I was kid (probably something done by Disney), but when I see something like this it has a great nostalgic pull for me.
