2011 Virtual Vacation

Church! Sleeping car, "Sunrise Seto", from Tokyo to Okayama
After a night in our own futon, we held the church services, ate lunch with the faithful, and, after an all too brief rest, started phase two of our Virtual Vacation. We went the wrong way! But we did it on purpose…heading first in the opposite direction to Odawara, where we caught a bullet train to Tokyo, thence a sleeper car to Okayama.

This sleeper car was the worst experience of the trip! The whole car was divided up into coffin-sized sections, top and bottom. We had blow-up travel pillows, and the train company generously provided a postage-stamp sized blanket. I have never been claustrophobic, but came close on this experience, which lasted about 8? hours.
