On the bullet train (新幹線 - shinkansen), with rice fields and hills passing by at 300kph. It feels more like being on a plane.

Really tricky lighting which you managed masterfully. It's funny that the train doesn't seem moving at all, and so the whole scene has a pleasant quietness to it.

The only way to travel! I love the shinkansen. Out in the west though, a lot of time is spent in tunnels. A great photo.
