There are a few night trains left in Japan. We will tell you about the Sunrise Izumo/Seto train, which connects Tokyo with Shimane Prefecture in western Japan and the city of Takamatsu on Shikoku Island. In fact, there are two trains: in the evening the train departs from Tokyo, splits into two parts in Okayama, and in the morning two parts arrive in Izumo and Takamatsu. At the same time, in the opposite direction, the trains interlock in Okayama and go to the capital.

The local reserved seat consists of two-level segments, separated from each other by small walls at the window. The Japanese are used to sleeping on the floor. Curtains can be separated only from the aisle, but not from adjacent segments. Although, if you sleep with your head to the window, you won't see the neighbors.
