Buses are a good way to travel long-distance, especially if you want to save on cash. If you want to save on a hotel as well, you might want to consider an overnight bus (夜間バス – yakan basu). Get on the bus in the evening, and arrive at your destination bright and early the next morning.

The following are some bus companies that serve the Kansai area. Most of their websites are in Japanese only, so you might need the help of a Japanese speaking friend.

Shinki Bus (神姫バス)

JR West Bus (西日本JRバス)

Keio Dentetsu Bus Group (京王電鉄バスグループ)

Zentan Bus (全但バス)
