Back in our time. New day—new trains. This one has wide panoramic windows.

It makes sense to pay attention to the info on the seat's back. It says that the height of the headrest is adjustable.

Pedestrian signal. No, it doesn't show 11. Bars disappear from top to bottom. It's green when the last one is gone.

I like to withdraw from an ATM like $95 to get lots of small bills. It's redundant in Japan with such a machine.

What kind of toilet do you expect to see in a room with a USSR style interior?

🇯🇵 Takayama, Japan, april 2017.

The modern one indeed! Plugged into a power outlet and with many buttons. Some people compare the number of buttons with a spaceship navigation panel. Anyway, it makes sense to get used to them. It proves useful later on. By the way, power outlets are type A and type B throughout the country.

🇯🇵 Takayama, Japan, april 2017.

Recognizable traditional Japanese houses. Usually, check-in at hotels is after 15:00 and check-out is before 10:00. Exceptions are rare. Wrong country to sleep till noon or so.
