The Budget Friendly Japan Highway Bus
Willer Express, A Japan bus is a major highway bus company in Japan that has been in operation since 2005, with routes spanning almost the entire country, from Aomori Prefecture in the north to Kyushu Prefecture in the south.
On weekdays, an overnight Japan bus ticket from Tokyo to Osaka costs around 4,000 yen. Travel for a third of the price of a shinkansen ticket. Despite the lengthier trip time, you can sleep during the journey. You will not only have a good time, but you will also save money on lodging.
Direct sales, a website, the "Japan Bus Pass", and a double-decker tour bus route serve both domestic and international passengers. The cost of a route varies significantly depending on the day and time of travel, with significant differences between peak and off-peak travel.
Night buses leave in the evening and arrive in the morning at their destination. In Japan, night buses are a common mode of domestic transportation. There are numerous routes to choose from, each with its own set of journey times. Traveling to your destination while sleeping allows you to make the most of your time.
"Long-distance bus in Japan. I took them often in the 90s, already amazing back then. Spacious like business class, tea dispensers, your own slippers. They would usually have two drivers for overnight busses, the one not driving would rest in a small compartment below the seating area."

"A start-up by me recently started luxury Japan bus service between DC and NYC with motion-canceling "hover seats."
It's still a pilot but apparently, if it goes well they're hoping to expand. I haven't ridden one yet but as a New Yorker living in DC, I'm excited to give them a shot."
