New Year’s Day we took the early morning shinkansen (bullet train) to Tokyo. As the sun rose, we, still very much asleep, crawled into an empty car and settled in for the trip. A few hours later we were speeding along beside unparalleled panoramas. This photo was taken out the window of my seat, while I was curled in sweats, half asleep, and dreaming of hot coffee.
Here’s a tip: When taking the train east, sit on the left side.
