Recording Shinkansen Sound Effects in Japan!
Oh, that was fun! Libby and I drove from Osaka to Hiroshima and we always see these huge walls of concrete with the railway lines for the Shinkansen! I always want to record this sound, but often times these lines are right next to busy streets with a lot of distracting car sounds.
Listen To The Shinkansen Sound Compilation
After several days of trying to find a nice spot along the way, I saw this beautiful open field. It is the Tokaido Shinkansen and the Sanyo Shinkansen line coming from Tokyo to Fukuoka and the other way around.
I got the sound of two Shinkansen from both directions. I was hoping to record more but we had no luck with the weather. It started to rain and we went back to our camper van. By the way traveling with a camper van in Japan is the best way to get around.
My daily outfit because it was sooo cold 🙂 “Sand Dunes Of Tatorri”
The sound of the Shinkansen is amazing and if you stay there and these massive and powerful trains coming and going in
