We took the Willer Express from Tokyo to Hiroshima last night/this morning. We left from the Willer Express Station in Sumitomo Building in Shinjuku promptly at 20:20.
The bus is awesome! The seats looked almost new. There was a foot rest. The seats recline and the leg part (yes, that’s the scientific name for it .. LOL) lifts up. Get this… each chair has it’s own little shady thingee (I know some of you aren’t as well-versed in professional transportation lingo, so I’ve provided a photo.
The ride was pretty uneventful until we realized that we weren’t sure where to get off to get to Peace Park in Hiroshima. Neither of the bus drivers spoke English, but they were both very nice. They had to call the office twice (and a stranger had to step in) for us to find out that we should get off at Hiroshima Station.
Long story short: take the Willer Express. It’s cheap. It’s comfy. It’s nothing like Greyhound.
