4,722 mph (7,600km/h) Imaginary Train Ride on Japan's Bullet Train

Fast story short: 511 miles (823km) — the distance between San Francisco and San Diego — in 10 minutes.

YouTube description:

Can you imagine what it would be like to travel on a train running at Mach 6?

This video will take you to a journey that is impossible with today's railway technology.

The original speed was recorded by GPS, at the same time as filming the view of the train window.

The displayed speed was precisely calculated from the original speed to match the speed of the hyperlapse.

This video is a fiction.

Normally it takes 4 hours from Tokyo to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto.

Maximum speed is 199 mph (320km/h).

The Shinkansen bullet train "Hayabusa" stops at Omiya, Sendai, Morioka, and Shin-Aomori.

"... impossible with today's railway technology."

But not forever.
