When choosing a way of traveling for a trip, many people will not select the bus as their first choice, due to the general impression that though it is more economical, the riding experience is less comfortable than other modes of transportation.
For this reason, taking the bus may not be the first to come to the mind of those who will have an overnight journey.
However, Japanese bus operator Willer Express recently launched a surprising night bus with reclining seats to provide passengers with more space than a seat in an airplane’s economy class.
Like many night buses in Japan, this new ReBorn bus has three non-attached seats in each row, but the ReBorn bus is different in that each passenger’s seat is equipped with an electric recliner and footrest as well as a personal table and charging port for the passenger.

These thoughtful facilities are sure to greatly enhance the comfort of the passenger during the journey.
Another advantage of the ReBorn bus is that it is cheaper than the Shinkansen bullet train, which is often used when traveling in Japan.
Many social media users pointed out that in addition to the cost-effective ride, the ReBorn bus can not only provide passengers with a comfortable place to spend the night but also help them save an extra accommodation fee which is an even better incentive to some.
As the price is far cheaper than that of the bullet train, it provides a more economical alternative for travelers. (Screengrab from willerexpress.com)
The ReBorn bus was launched last summer, but as the pandemic situation was extremely severe at the time, many people in Japan had no plans to travel.
Therefore, as the pandemic slows down a little, the ReBorn bus only recently became viral on the internet as more travelers take note of its luxurious equipment.
Social media users have also commented that they will definitely give the bus a try once traveling is deemed safe, while others greatly lauded its impeccable design.
