Overnight, Long-distance buses in Japan

Long-distance buses (highway, night-buses) link major cities in Japan. Generally, these buses leave at night and arrive at their destination in the following morning. Although it takes more time than traveling by train, the fare is cheaper than train fares.

It is not as comfortable as traveling by train, but it can be money saving on one-day accommodation as well as transportation cost.


To use long-distance buses, prior reservation is required in most of cases. There are many web sites offering online-booking services for these types of busses, however, most of them are available only in Japanese, unfortunately. If you have no problem understanding Japanese language, the following web sites will be convenient. You can book online and make the payment at nearby convenience store ( or by credit card).
