When traveling through Japan, one experience everyone should have is a ride on the bullet train, formally known as the “Shinkansen.” Moving at 186 miles per hour, the journey is surprisingly comfortable and smooth, even featuring amenities like Wi-Fi, electric outlets and futuristic toilets. However, according to The Minute Tour, the main reason to ride this train isn’t the technology or the ride itself, but the food you eat before you board. We’ll admit, the delicious looking Ramen noodles in the video certainly does make us hungry, and definitely look nothing like the 25 cent packages from 7-11.

For a quick one minute preview of the food and the train ride, check out the video below, created by Alexlopoukhine.
