Travelling across Japan is such a breeze thanks to a well connected network of flights and shinkansen. However, those options can be pricey. Now there’s an affordable way to travel where you don’t have to sacrifice comfort. Tokyo-based bus company Willer Express now has some amazing overnight buses, which offer you your own personal pod with reclining seats.
You’ll find these private pods on Willer’s line of ReBorn buses, launched in 2020. Each ReBorn bus has 18 spacious reclining seats with a footrest, neck rest, foldable table, cup holder, blanket plus an electrical outlet to charge all your devices.
These buses are definitely a great option to tour around Japan on the cheap. For more information, visit the website.
