Night bus from Kyoto to Tokyo: The VIP Lounge

Taking the night bus is a stressful experience. It starts already the moment you step out of your room heading for Kyoto station. There is something with the fear that something, anything, might go wrong, and you'll be left there without any chance of reaching your destination.
Standing outside Kyoto Eki in the evening waiting for the night bus can be specially unpleasant, with cold weather and a bunch of people rushing around you from every direction.

That is when it is good to have a VIP lounge.
Here you can sit in a warm room, relax while watching tv or surfing online, all without having to worry about loosing the bus. Today it seems I'm lucky, because the bus company I travel with, He120, has a nice lounge where I can chill out before the long night begin.

I hope the bus ride will be as comfortable as their lounge.. でもどうやろうなあ.. xP
I guess I'm happy as long as the bus driver doesn't fall asleep on the way.

VIP liner has their own lounges where you can relax before or after your trip

If you arrive at the lounge early you can take the time to relax, and maybe watch some Japanese TV.
