The Hakata Express, King of Night Bus (キングオブ深夜バス はかた号) is one of the longest night bus trips in Japan. This time, I traveled from Hakata to Shinjuku, Tokyo on the most expensive private room called Premium Seat (福岡 博多バスターミナル→東京 バスタ新宿 最高級個室 プレミアムシート). It is about 1,100km (684 miles) trip that takes about 15 hours. The bus I got on was an old model vehicle, but the seat was comfortable with individual curtains and automatic reclining. (I’ll make a video of the bus trip on the new model Hakata Express as well) The bus has only 4 premium seats, so it’s better to book as soon as you plan your trip.
“I had a dream of my ass coming off” … The bus trip was so long and harsh that a guy made this famous quote on a super-popular Japanese TV show(水曜どうでしょう), and Hakata Express became famous as “King of Night Bus”.
☆★☆This is what it was actually like!☆★☆
—Hakata Express, Japan—
* My a🍑s didn’t come off
* I didn’t dream about my a🍑s coming off either as the Premium Seat was so comfortable.
* The Hakata Express is usually the second longest bus trip in Japan, but due to a traffic accident, it became the longest in Japan only that day.
* I really appreciate and respect the drivers’ hard work.
* Although the fare is almost the same as (just slightly cheaper than) that of bullet trains, airplanes, or toll roads, I like night bus trip because it has its own unique travel experience.
* The nostalgic old model vehicle wasn’t bad at all, but next time, I’d like to try riding the new model Hakata Express as well.
* After getting off “King of Night Bus”, eating “Queen of Breakfast”. Good flow.
A challenge to visit every country in the world… “Japan” is the “1st” country that I visited out of all the 196 counties in the world.
