I love those futuristic Japanese train designs.... The interiors are very nice and luxurious too

Small windows are still better than no windows at all...like in most modern European trains...

Possibly because it allows quieter interiors, as much of the route these trains will run on will be in tunnel. It may also allow enhanced body shell strength and less distortion when exposed to shocks when running in narrow tunnels. Anyway, seating arrangements allow all window seats a view outside (no blank walls such as in Virgin Voyagers), and even with smaller windows, when you actually sit at a window seat you don't notice it much.

There is also weight, glass and/or acrylic windows are not light compared to the double aluminum shell honeycomb sandwich structure of the exterior hull.

This is a N700 Shinkansen I've portrayed at Tokyo Station on October 2009. After a couple of minutes we boarded an all-similar N700 Nozomi bound for Kyoto. The ride was fast, comfortable and the service really above average. I was stunned by the frequency of the service on the Tokaido line, it was absolutely remarkable.The ride, however, was a little bit bumpy if compared to similar European products, notably Germany's ICE and Italy's ETR.500 AV. On-board space, anyway, was way above anything from the Old Continent.

Last night (2010.10.28), I believe they were testing a coupled E5 and E6 train for the first time.

This is the best available... Unfortunately, no HD videos have been posted, since it's probably too soon.
