The ten-wheeled compact wonder was designed by award-winning designer Eiji Mitooka who previously worked on Shinkansen trains and the legendary Seven Stars in Kyushu express.

Adult fares start at a very reasonable 100 yen and it has plenty of accessibility features as well.

This bus will go places.
